The Health Innovation Campus has launched a new web page for organisations interested in working on site to co-create groundbreaking developments in health and wellbeing.
The new £41m campus will open in spring 2020 and will be home to Lancaster University’s Medical School and Division of Health Research – but also offers space for organisations to co-locate on site and work with the University and its partners on significant health challenges.
As well as office space and hot-desking facilities, HIC residents will have the opportunity to utilise the various meeting rooms and event spaces in the new building – including a dedicated Innovation Lab and Business Lounge.
But the most important aspects of co-location are the opportunities to engage in academic partnerships and join consortia of organisations working on large-scale projects to improve health and wellbeing.
Dr Sherry Kothari, Director of the Health Innovation Campus, said: “By joining us at the Health Innovation Campus, organisations will become part of an eco-system that maximises the value of co-design and co-production to develop health solutions through cross-sector, multi-disciplinary collaborations.
“Through our engagement work to date, we have already had a number of companies apply to be considered for space in the new building.
“Many of these organisations see this as an opportunity to help shape the future of health and wellbeing delivery – and put their skills to use in driving forward projects which can provide positive benefits for our communities.”
