Translate: Me – Innovation Bootcamp

Transforming medtech researchers

Monday 4th Wednesday 6th December 2017, Leeds

Translate: Me – Innovation Bootcamp is a hands on, three-day residential workshop designed to empower Early Career Researchers and Postgraduate research students to innovate more effectively, navigating the complexities of getting ideas developed, adopted and spread throughout the NHS.

Translate: Me – Innovation Bootcamp is open to 25 delegates from across the five Translate partner universities. It will cover the innovation development process from idea to reality, and is engineered to provide the intensity encountered in real product development.

  • Actual case studies will be used to equip learners with a real understanding of the challenges facing innovation in healthcare;
  • Teams will produce a short business case and pitch in front of a panel of ‘dragons’ – the winning team will receive a prize worth over £1000;
  • This workshop will provide delegates with the tools to efficiently identify and scope genuine clinical unmet need through to pitching a new product or service.

Participants are expected to be resident for the full duration of the workshop, i.e. from Monday 9am to Wednesday 5pm (unless otherwise agreed).

Apply now by filling in the online form (opens form in a browser window). Spaces cost £50 per delegate, which includes accommodation and all catering.

Spaces are limited, and will be allocated on a competitive basis and balanced across partner universities.

Deadline for applications: 6th October 2017
