Our AHSN partners, with their understanding of current initiatives and access to local populations, are in a unique position to offer support to innovators with health and care solutions.
This partnership enables innovations to be widely tested and disseminated, and offers NIA Fellows access to large populations and expertise. AHSNs support NIA innovations which address particular health needs within their population, help up-skill healthcare staff and partner organisations, and promote economic growth.
AHSNs connect NHS and academic organisations, local authorities, the third sector and industry. They are uniquely placed to identify and spread health innovation at pace and scale.
This Innovation Pathway summarises how AHSNs support the entire innovation life cycle.
