Academic Health Science Networks work with health and care businesses and individual innovators to help realise the potential of their ideas.
AHSNs provide a wide range of support to innovators, which depends largely on the needs and development stage of their specific innovation. For example, in the case of early-stage innovator support this may include advice and guidance on gaps in an innovator’s value proposition, gaps in their evidence base, and potentially helping to develop a proof-of-concept prototype.
Much of the early work AHSNs do with innovators is around helping them to understand the complexities of the health and care sectors.
We’ve collated some useful resources to help innovators learn more about these challenges:
Find your local AHSN
Use our postcode finder to locate your nearest AHSN. They can advise you on funding applications and signpost you to other AHSNs as your innovation develops.
Alternatively, access support from your regional AHSN by completing our company engagement form. This will give us the information we need to direct our support effectively.
