Invitation to catalyse healthtech innovation and economic growth
Member News

A wide range of support for businesses, innovators, entrepreneurs and researchers goes live this month to catalyse and accelerate economic growth and the adoption of healthtech innovation. Through events, workshops and direct introductions, the new Healthtech Catalyst Network will link to expertise from industry, academia, the public sector, investor networks and entrepreneurs to stimulate innovation and commercialisation.

Led and managed by Leeds Academic Health Partnership, the free-to-join Network sits at the heart of a global healthtech hub. The Leeds City Region is home to 22% of the UK’s digital health jobs and its economy contributed around £67 billion gross value added (GVA), or 5 per cent of the UK’s total.

More than 650 of regional businesses are supplying products and services to the health and care sector and around 200 of these are digital.

Through new regional, national and international collaborations, the Healthtech Catalyst Network will help position the Leeds City Region as the engine of innovation across the City Region and the nation.

Dr Liz Mear, Managing Director, Leeds Academic Health Partnership, said: “I encourage people to sign up to our new Network and find out what support it offers them. 

By working together, our Network will help us all speed up the adoption of healthtech innovations and transform and save lives. At the same time, it will drive economic growth across Leeds City Region and, in doing so, underpin the ambitions of our regional, cross-sector, healthtech partnership”
