The launch of the Healthcare Innovation Readiness Programme will take place on Tuesday 26th January 2021.
The purpose of the event is to enhance businesses knowledge of the approaches to help articulate the value of a product or service offering, and guide attendees through the process of how to develop their own version, targeted at selling into the healthcare sector.
Target audience: Businesses from across the North East from a healthcare service provider background or a supplier of goods background or potentially both or with aspirations to work within this growing sector.
