Strategic and Industry Partnerships

The Oxford AHSN region is a leading national and international life sciences cluster, home to a rich and diverse community of innovators, entrepreneurs and researchers.

The Oxford AHSN Strategic and Industry Partnerships programme builds evidence for innovations in the real world, working with companies and other partners to accelerate health and economic gains.

In diagnostics, digital health, medtech and pharma, the Oxford AHSN provides expert support along the entire innovation pathway, from idea origination, through concept development, testing and regulatory approval and on to adoption – working closely with the Oxford AHSN Clinical Innovation Adoption programme.

It fosters long-term partnerships with industry and a culture of innovation in the NHS, securing more than £100m investment into the Thames Valley region.

This work is aligned with the Accelerated Access Collaborative and the requirements of the Office for Life Sciences which is funding AHSNs to establish a network of innovation exchanges.

These include:

  • identifying needs and collaboration opportunities
  • real world evaluation and monitoring of clinical and economic impact
  • diffusion and adoption of innovations
  • signposting for industry.
