Add value to your existing health and care collaboration

If you are a company who have a research collaboration with an R&D organisation, or a research and technology one; or with a higher or further education institution, then TheHill wants to support you.

On 20th January TheHill, in partnership with OxLEP Business, is bringing together a panel of specialists for a morning workshop for companies to empower you to further understand the opportunities and benefits these collaborations can bring to your company, and ensure you in turn, are able to add value to those partnerships.

Space is limited and is limited to companies who currently have a research collaboration in the health and care arena and have a signed agreement to support this.

Please register your interest in attending the event here
