Growing MedTech Translation: a celebration of Translate and the launch of Grow MedTech

22 November 2018, 2-5pm

Creating a community has been one of the true successes of the Translate programme. We have enabled new connections to be made, cementing trust between the university partners across the region, and with health innovation organisations and industry.

Our role has been to create an environment that enables medtech innovation and development. Through training, mentoring, secondments and on-project learning, we have been equipping the Translate community with the knowledge, skills and collaborations needed to progress their technologies.

We are inviting you to join us this November in a celebration of Translate’s achievements:

  • Hear about technologies progressed through Translate’s summer projects
  • Join a discussion on accelerating medtech developments through secondments – with a panel of innovators, early career researchers, academics and enablers
  • Learn about opportunities available from Translate beyond 2018
  • Enjoy networking opportunities with the Translate community

The Grow MedTech launch immediately follows the Translate celebration, and we strongly encourage the Translate community to attend both events.


22 November 2018, 5-7.30pm

Grow MedTech is a new programme, funded by the Research England Connecting Capability Fund, supporting medical technology innovation in the Leeds and Sheffield City Regions.

Focusing on technology convergence and the de-risking of technologies, Grow MedTech will bring together leading technology and translational expertise in the Leeds and Sheffield City Regions in a patient-focussed and commercially-driven innovation system. It will enhance productivity and economic growth in the UK medical technology sector, while addressing the evolving health needs of the population.

At the launch event, you will have the opportunity to learn more about funding opportunities and support available through Grow MedTech and finish the evening with a networking drinks reception.

The full programme will be announced soon, but spaces are limited and registration is essential.

Book now to avoid disappointment.
