The Innovation Exchange

What is the Innovation Exchange?

The West of England Innovation Exchange is designed to help innovators understand what the NHS challenges are and connect innovators to the help they need. Developed by the West of England AHSN, with funding from the Office for Life Sciences, it is part of network of simlar services provided by AHSNs across the country.
