We act as partnership brokers, using our knowledge and experience to proactively connect people from academia, industry and clinical practice to collaborate more effectively in developing new medical technologies. We also link into the wider network of healthcare innovation support organisations across the regions, to create added value.

Joining the Grow MedTech community gives you access to the combined strengths of our six partner universities, as well as the sector specialist expertise of our technology innovation managers (TIMs).

Team working

Each of our TIMs are based in one of our partner universities, but they work collectively as a team.

Whether you are an academic, company or clinician, our TIMs will work with you to assess the potential for your technology or idea, find you the right partners to help move the technology forward and provide advice and support on funding sources to enable validation, establish market need or commercial feasibility.

Wherever you make your first contact with Grow MedTech, you are accessing the opportunities and expertise provided across our whole network.

Face to face and online

We also run a regular calendar of events throughout the year, to provide opportunities for you to network with others in the sector, creating new partnerships and sparking new ideas for collaboration.

But dialogue and debate across the network isn’t limited to these events. We also maintain the conversation online, through Twitter and LinkedIn, with news and opportunities for the community posted regularly on our website.
