Collaborate with us
The Centre for Healthcare Technologies (CHT) brings together clinicians, academics from all disciplines, patients, and industry to accelerate the pathway from scientific discovery to clinical adoption. Find out how we can support you and our track record of supporting MedTech development:
We work with businesses of all sizes from SMEs to multinationals, to develop and enhance medical device development.
We can support:
- Identifying academic collaborators
- Helping to get your device NHS ready with CHEATA
- Innovation funding
These partnerships involve a qualified graduate being seconded into a business to lead delivery of a specific project. With access to academic support and up to 67% government funding, the partnerships represent excellent value for participating businesses. We are highly experienced with over 100 delivered projects.
- Accessing our facilities and equipment
- Placements and internships
Benefit from a wealth of academic expertise and get access to highly skilled potential employees. There are opportunities to sponsor a PhD or smaller project at reduced costs.
By combining real work with rigorous study, degree apprenticeships help businesses to develop a highly-skilled workforce. Designed with employers, they are a cost-effective way to attract, develop and retain talent. Apprentice students don’t pay fees; funding comes from the apprenticeship levy or Government co-investment.
Degrees available include
- Advanced Clinical Practitioner Level 7
- Bioinformatics Scientist Level 7
- Data Scientist Level 6
