Digital Health Innovation Programme - Needs-led innovation training for the health technology sectors


The Digital Health Innovation Programme aims to embed the mindset and methodology of needs-led innovation with a view to increasing innovation capability and new product development in the health technology sector.

The programme applies a “learn by doing” approach using proven biodesign, lean start-up, and design thinking methodologies. Participants will learn and apply the process of:

- investigating and identifying unmet customer and commercial needs,

- prioritising those needs and identifying potential solutions,

- assessing their commercial potential, and

- developing compelling business cases for stakeholder and funding approval.

The programme comprises 8 workshops over a 4-month period in parallel with mentoring, industry networking, customer and stakeholder engagement and team project work. Throughout, participants from the same company will work in multidisciplinary teams (ideally 2-5 people) on company projects/strategic areas to progress an unmet need.

A key programme output will be a business case and pitch for presentation to company management

The programme is aimed at employees and intrapreneurs from the medtech, pharma/biopharma, digital health and other allied sectors interested in digital health .
