Emerging Tech in Healthcare: Healthy Ageing

Posted on: 05/11/2018

A networking event focussing on emerging tech in healthcare will take place on 8th November in Gateshead.

The GX Project alongside South Tyneside and Sunderland Healthcare Group are hosting a networking event over a light breakfast on Thursday 8th November at PROTO: The Emerging Technology Centre in Gateshead. The event, taking place from 08:30 – 10:30, will focus on emerging technology in healthcare, with Dr. Teresa Fortune from South Tyneside and Sunderland Healthcare delivering a keynote speech on her innovation work within the healthcare sector.

The event will highlight how SMEs can identify and act on the challenges and opportunities that come with increased tech adoption and the use of tech-based solutions to live well, feel well and age well. The session will also enable networking, conversations and potential collaborations to take place amongst like-minded individuals and organisations.

The event will give attendees the opportunity to hear about the latest thinking on embedding new technologies and ideas into clinical practice and exploiting opportunities in international markets. There will be the chance to find out what funding is available to SMEs working in the healthcare sector through the GX Project Grant Scheme.

The GX Project is led by NewcastleGateshead Initiative and provides a range of opportunities to North-East SMEs and scaleups before, during and after the Great Exhibition of the North. The project has a focus on innovation and is designed to enable local businesses to benefit from the platform provided by the Exhibition during the summer.
