Training & Capacity Building

We are committed to building capacity and capability to support the development and commercialisation of health technology innovations and diagnostic products.

Central to our approach is equality, diversity and inclusion.  Our partner organisations hold an Athena SWAN Equality Charter Gold Award for promoting gender equality (University of Leeds) and an NHS Rainbow Badge Award for commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion in training and development (Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust).

We are currently in the process of developing a training and capacity building strategy to develop and support the next generation of HealthTech innovators and methodologists.  Our programme of events and activities will be made available soon.
