Our colleagues at Translate have developed a training and development programme that brings together the best innovation development opportunities from across the Leeds City Region partners.

The Translate: Me training programme provides innovation development opportunities for postgraduates, research staff and business development managers at partner universities.

It is delivered through a flexible, pick and mix programme of introductory, stand-alone workshops, designed to equip researchers and business development teams with the skills to translate research ideas into medical technology products and clinical solutions.

The Translate: Me Training Programme is open to PhD students, researchers, academics and business development staff in any one of the Translate partner universities (Bradford, Huddersfield, Leeds, Leeds Beckett, and York).

NHS Strategy and Adoption/Market Involvement

26 June - 9.30 - 16.00

Could your research help patients in the healthcare setting? Could it lead to faster services or diagnostic tests?

Are you keen to get practical use of your research in the NHS?

This one-day workshop will look at how to start innovating in the NHS context, and will provide you with the practical tools to assess your research for potential in a healthcare setting. Using real case studies, we’ll explore how innovation works in the NHS, the opportunities and potential pitfalls to avoid when developing your research into something that can benefit patients.
