Two-day Health Innovation Workshop: Day 1 : Wednesday 22nd January & Day 2 : Thursday 30th January 2020

Innovation in health is everybody’s business. Whether you are small or medium-sized business working in a different sector, a leader of a charity, or a GP who wants to do things differently – everyone has something to contribute.

Join Lancaster University’s new Health Innovation team and ensure that your innovative ideas succeed by asking the right questions at the start of your innovation journey. Using a methodology called ‘Design Thinking’ you will learn to put yourself into the shoes of the person whose problem you are trying to solve and you will leave with a toolkit enabling you to do things differently in your organisation with immediate impact.

You will also learn to use collaboration outside of your organisation as a competitive advantage. During the workshop you will be tasked to work on local health challenges, designed to help you to leverage open innovation and expand your business capability. 

Workshop benefits:

  • Be inspired, challenged, and motivated to innovate
  • Identify opportunities for new innovative business models for the health sector
  • Learn to apply the structured process of design thinking to product development
  • Learn to use new tools that will lead to improved business performance
