We are delighted to have the Innovation Agency as the 2018 content partner

The Innovation Agency is the Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) for the North West Coast, covering Cheshire, Lancashire, Merseyside and South Cumbria.

They are one of 15 AHSNs funded by NHS national commissioners to spread innovations which have been demonstrated to improve health; and to support health systems in improvement and transformation.

The Innovation Agency won the Bionow Business Services Award 2017 for the achievements of their Business Connect service in supporting businesses to work with the NHS. The award also recognised the Innovation Agency’s success in securing £3.5 million from the European Regional Development Fund for business support programmes delivered alongside partners with an additional £3m match funding.
