The NIHR will be exhibiting at this year’s Health and Care Innovation Expo on 2-3 September in Manchester.
The Health and Care Innovation Expo is one of the NHS’ biggest events and celebrates world leaders in science, research and innovation. As the ‘research arm of the NHS’ the NIHR will be there to showcase its work and increase awareness of clinical research as a means of innovation.
As well as having a large exhibition space to promote how the NIHR works together to improve the health and wealth of the nation, the NIHR also has two sessions on the event’s ‘Pop up University’ agenda; a series of high quality workshops open to all delegates at the event. The first session titled ‘The NIHR – what’s in it for me?’ takes place on Wednesday 2 September at 10am and will explain the opportunities open to healthcare professionals, industry experts and NHS patients from the NIHR and is led by Simon Denegri, NIHR National Director for Patients and the Public alongside an industry professional, an NIHR trainee and a research-active patient.
The second session takes place on Thursday 3 September at 11am and is called ‘Growing the health and wealth of the nation’. This session has a focus on industry and is led by Dr Matt Hallsworth of the NIHR Office for Clinical Research Infrastructure (NOCRI) alongside Matt Cooper, Business Development and Marketing Director at the Clinical Research Network, Professor Ian Bruce Director of the NIHR Manchester Musculoskeletal Biomedical Research Unit and Deputy Director of the NIHR / Wellcome Trust Manchester Clinical Research Facility.
