Revolutionising Healthcare innovating Putting communities first

Join us for the next Leadership in Extraordinary Times event of 2021: Revolutionising healthcare innovation: Putting communities first

Revolutionising Healthcare Innovation: Putting Communities First, brings industry, policy, academia and entrepreneurs together to open a discussion on how these stakeholders can work collaboratively to stimulate community-centered innovation for health.

The Novartis Innovation Prize: Assistive Tech for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) was launched in 2020 to promote solutions to mobility challenges faced by the MS community, and to increase awareness of the need for “outside-in” innovation that directly involves these communities from day-one.

Our panel includes the winner of the prize, a leader from the disability tech space (who is also one of our alumni), a leading patient advocate, the EU Commission, and the university’s Pro Vice Chancellor For Innovation. They will be considering the future of innovation in healthcare in a post-COVID era, and how industry, policy, academia and entrepreneurs can work collaboratively together to shape this.
