“The UK is taking a lead in data-driven research and innovation to tackle some of healthcare’s global challenges and to deliver better, more equal care provision worldwide. Home to world-leading clusters in biotech and biopharma, including the Midlands, the UK is a global hub for life sciences, with the second highest level of government spending on health R&D across all G7 countries.”
Dr Mike Short, Chief Scientific Adviser, Department for International Trade
Lord Bilimoria, Chancellor of the University of Birmingham said:
“Health is the foundation of wellbeing and economic growth. Through true collaborative partnerships between government, academia, the NHS and healthcare industry leaders, we can meet the dual ambitions of making the UK a global science superpower and providing equality of healthcare access for all.”
The UK’s healthcare ecosystem offers a connected and forward-thinking industry cluster, linking investors with customers, collaborators, supply chains, and innovation partners.
