Innovation Programme

Theatre light

We are currently preparing for the next Innovation Programme. Please follow our Twitter account/ Facebook profile for updates.

Our innovation programmes include sessions on:

  • Defining clinical needs.
  • Critical design thinking.
  • Interdisciplinary team working.
  • Business modelling and financing.
  • Delivering a pitch to commercial/ clinical stakeholders.

At our innovation events, you will work with others from different disciplines to refine existing products or develop your own products into a fully-formed idea, ready for commercial or NHS testing.

We will be hosting the following opportunities for you:

  • Innovation taster evenings - we learn the medicine and engineering behind a product, and create ideas on how to improve it.
  • Innovation programmes - we explore the clinical problem in depth to come up with a robust idea on how to solve the problem, and pitch the idea to clinicians and businesses.
  • Hackathon events - we consider current issues in healthcare that could be remedied through technology and coding, teaching you these skills along the way, and leaving the event with a firm sense of accomplishment.

For more information about these events, please email WarwickSMT@gmail.com 

 

We are working with the UHCW Innovation Hub and Warwick Innovation Centre to provide University of Warwick students skills to create their own solutions to everyday clinical problems.
