HSR UK Webinar: Update on research and innovation infrastructure

In this webinar, the AHSN Network explores its work to understand NHS priorities for health and care innovation and how collaboration with research partners including new Applied Research Collaboratives (ARCs) and Academic Health Science Centres (AHSCs) are responding to these needs. Speakers will focus on addressing the four priority areas which emerged from the 2019 national research and innovation needs survey commissioned by the AHSN Network: workforce challenges, mental health, multimorbidity and use of digital technologies and artificial intelligence.

The webinar will take place on Friday 19 June 14:00-15:00 BST. Sign up here.
