West Midlands-based NHS organisations and universities conduct significant amounts of world-leading clinical research in partnership with industry. Much of the research conducted is with large pharmaceutical companies, but small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), with products including medical devices and digital tools, often find it difficult to undertake research with the NHS, universities, networks and other infrastructure.
To address this concern, the WMAHSN has organised an event on 15 July 2015 in central Birmingham to showcase successful SME collaborations with the NHS, universities and National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) infrastructure. The event will also highlight new initiatives to support SMEs and provide opportunities in workshops and other sessions for SMEs to raise challenges faced and identify solutions.
