Event Details

If your innovation doesn’t fit any of the active challenges, then this webinar is for you. By  attending the webinar you will be able to access our AHSN NENC specialist innovation services and share your innovation across the NHS. We can support you to gain feedback, explore opportunities and gain expert advice and support around key issues relating to your idea or innovation.

The aim of the webinar is to provide an opportunity to gain an understanding of horizon scanning which is used as an overall term for analysing the future: considering how emerging trends and developments might potentially affect current policy and practice.

We will be joined by Dale Athey and James Woltman from the NIHR Innovation Observatory (NIHRIO), the national medical horizon scanning facility based at Newcastle University, who will outline the work at Innovation Observatory and update on a new programme aimed specifically at SME’s.

By joining our session, you can expect to leave with a greater understanding of:

  • How to visualise your future and keep an eye out on what is coming
  • Worldwide databases and search techniques
  • The range of possible methodological approaches and tools used in horizon scanning
  • The new NHS Innovation Service
