Bridging the Gap Conference

Whether you are a healthcare SME, clinical entrepreneur or established innovator, the AHSN Network's Bridging the Gap conference is a not to be missed event!

Through a series of engaging presentations, workshops and panel sessions, Bridging the Gap will align our commitment to support the growth and development of your innovation and help you to navigate the complexities of working with the NHS.

Join us to discover the role that the AHSN Network and wider landscape can play in your innovation journey and the benefits of being part of a dynamic community.

If you are interested in accessing the health and care marketplace and keen to learn about the challenges commonly encountered in the latter stages of the innovation pathway, while also hearing about the experiences of successful innovators who have already been supported by the AHSN Network.
