The Innovation Pathway North East is a new initiative, funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), developed through a formal partnership between NHS Innovations North and HIEC NE.
The Innovation Pathway North East aims to support the entire life cycle of innovation, from its conception to early stage protection of any associated IP, through to the adoption and dissemination of the innovative technology or service.
The Innovation Pathway North East will deliver a range of specialist services to support the development and commercialisation of innovative ideas and provide the unique opportunity for Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) and NHS organisations based in the North East region to access, interact with and benefit from, the healthcare sector. In particular, The Innovation Pathway North East will deliver a brokerage between SMEs, the NHS and other healthcare organisations and the industry sector to facilitate the exploitation of newly emerging innovations, drive high technology research and support development.
