Do you have a sustainable innovation that could help revolutionise the healthcare sector?

The healthcare sector came under immense pressure during the pandemic and there has been a significant increase in single-use items. Together with the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN), we've partnered with Create Central to deliver Innovate:Create (powered by Innovation Engin3), a programme supporting Green Innovation to drive sustainable solutions for the healthcare sector. Innovation Engine is funded by the West Midlands Innovation Programme, via the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA).

With the Commonwealth games coming to the region in 2022, we’re looking to showcase the West Midlands’ ability to collaborate across sectors. As part of this, we want to demonstrate how we can creatively support the healthcare industry in reducing its impact on the environment. Are you up for the challenge?
