Innovation challenge for SMEs: solutions for the future of health

6th April 2018

Interested in the future of healthcare? Do you have ideas, products or solutions that you would like to develop?

West Midlands businesses are invited to take part in a FREE two-day practical workshop aimed at improving NHS access for the region’s patients and the future of the health sector.

Birmingham City University is running the STEAMlabs Health Hack event, to be held on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 April, which will see SMEs tasked with finding ways to make health services easier to use.

The event will focus on some key regional health issues, such as respiratory problems and diabetes, to see how technology could be used to improve how patients interact with the NHS.

The Health Hack forms part of Birmingham City University and Eastide Projects’ STEAMhouse initiative which aims to maximise the benefits of connecting science, technology and maths disciplines with the arts.

It will take place at 108 Digbeth High Street from 4.30pm on April 18 until 6pm on April 19.

The first day will feature a series of keynote speakers and see teams selected, while planning, prototype creation and pitches will take place on the second day.

The products and ideas will be presented in front of an expert panel of NHS professionals with opportunities for teams to secure future funding.
