The Lancaster Health Innovation Campus

Lancaster’s vision for health innovation is to make a major contribution to tackling the world’s healthcare challenges. As we continue to live longer, the preservation of good health and quality of life presents significant challenges to an increasingly ageing population. Health systems in the UK, and globally, are under enormous pressure, necessitating innovative approaches across a range of platforms. The Health Innovation Campus will provide the physical space to support researchers, healthcare providers, businesses, local authorities and policymakers in overcoming health challenges.

The HIC will pay particular attention to addressing health challenges affecting the global population, whilst recognising that many solutions will be implemented at an individual level. Our initial expertise is around three themes: healthy places, material science and digital health. The aim is to enable people to live as well and as independently as possible, for as long as possible. As well as, enabling people to achieve and sustain their optimal health and wellbeing, enable early detection and intervention of disease, and mechanisms to easily self-manage health issues in home and community settings.

At the centre of the HIC philosophy is a commitment to the development of an innovation eco-system that is based on collaboration between academics, healthcare and charitable organisations, businesses, entrepreneurs and the public; working together to help co-design, develop and evaluate new ideas.
