Welcome to the Pathways to Health and Wealth event at Lancaster University.
Dr Karen Wright
Bringing together the expertise from across the faculties of Health and Medicine, Science and Technology and the Management School, the Pathways to Health and Wealth event will provide a practical guide to navigating the complete route to market with Lancaster University.
The event will take place at the Lancaster Management School on Monday March 31st 2014, between 4-7pm.
We are delighted that Dr Mark Treherne from UKTI is our keynote speaker. He has a wealth of experience and a key national role in leading major initiatives to enable the university, NHS and business sectors to work more closely and more productively together.
This event showcases the university's work with the business and health sectors, involving a wide range of activities with local, national and international businesses. Lancaster is a small but highly successful research intensive University, with a strong track record of success in Industry engagement and support.
Through the Lancaster Health Hub, and our enterprise partners in each of the faculties, and our links with larger networks regionally and nationally we can help your business access funding, navigate NHS networks and deliver your products and services to market.
By working together and crossing sectoral boundaries, we are able to source expertise specifically for your company.
My colleagues and I hope you will come and join us to find out more, and I look forward to meeting you at the event.
