A combination of more than 60 cross-sector partners has been formed by ARU, including multinational companies such as Deloitte, IBM, Unipart, as well as NHS hospitals, research charities and business and innovation support networks such as Medilink Midlands and the Biocity group, to create economic growth and deliver the programme in the life science sector.
“Anglia Ruskin University has been selected as NHS England and NHS Improvement’s official partner.“
The network will provide access to NHS test and evaluation sites, internships, academic and commercial facilities in America, Africa, Europe and Australia, access to funding and connection to customers.
International organisations and partners in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will also establish Clinical Entrepreneur Programme Chapters to inspire homegrown life science start-ups.
