Support for Industry
As part of our work we act as an interface between our stakeholders and industry, particularly the SME community. We provide a range of intelligence products and services, and actively look for opportunities for collaboration - whether this takes the shape of business cases, product development insights, or collaboration in research funding proposals - we are an integral partner for health & life sciences SMEs bringing innovations to the UK market.
The Innovation Observatory is the home of health innovations scanning. Bringing together expertise in data science and AI, horizon scanning, information studies, and evidence synthesis, we provide the timely intelligence needed to accelerate innovative technologies into the NHS.
In addition, the Innovation Observatory is industry’s gateway to the NICE Technology Assessment (TA) Programme.
