Healthy Ageing and Technology Innovation Lab

7th November 2019

Lead institution:
The University of Manchester

This Innovation Lab is co-funded by The University of Manchester, Aspect and Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA)

The Healthy Ageing and Technology Innovation Lab initiates co-developed research projects that address a business need. A total of five businesses were invited to the Innovation Lab in February 2019, where they were paired with the 24 academics in attendance. During the day, teams work through a process to define the problem/question, generate solutions and assess feasibility, and pitch a project idea to expert panel. Seed corn funds were awarded to all five teams, to develop an exploratory project working with the industry partner, with a view to developing this relationship and the area of research.
