18 January 2023
13:00 - 14:00

This online webinar hosted by Medlink Midlands explores these benefits, providing tangible guidance for those keen to collaborate, as well as case studies from those who have already established successful partner projects.

The session will open with a talk from Caroline Sykes from the Medilink Midlands Innovation Adviser team. Drawing on her extensive experience across the sector, Caroline will be highlighting both the reasons and routes for establishing, developing and making the most of academic and industry collaborative opportunities.

There will then be a joint presentation from Jenny Murray, CEO of Life Science Group (LSG) and Abhimanyu Bose, Knowledge Exchange Executive for Coventry University, who will be sharing the story of their successful Knowledge Exchange Partnership (KEP), through which they co-developed CellShip, a cell transport system without a cold chain requirement. The project was rated ‘Outstanding’ by the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) – the highest rating – and also secured them a finalist spot in the Medilink Midlands Business Awards 2022.

Our final presentation will be delivered by Joe Lillis and Jorge Madeira Marques Pinto, lead researchers on a collaborative project between Anglia Ruskin University and Italian company, La Fattoria la Vialla, exploring the potential health, performance and sustainability benefits of olive oil products developed at their organic-biodynamic farm.

As well as an opportunity to showcase current successful projects, this session lays the foundations for a series of support sessions that Medilink Midlands will be running in partnership with the Arise Innovation Hubs and will be your opportunity to find out more information.
