We are delighted to have the Innovation Agency as the 2019 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 proved to improve health; and to support health systems in improvement and transformation.

They have an important role in economic growth and are delivering three ERDF funded business support programmes in the region which in the last year produced record results.

Supported companies received total investment of £8.2 million; gained new contracts worth nearly £2.5 million; and created 73 new jobs.

Chief Executive Dr Liz Mear said:

“We can’t innovate and improve in the NHS and social care without our commercial partners and I am proud to support this important TEC event to explore the best-in-class technologies supporting independent living.” @innovationnwc
