Oxford Healthtech Labs teaches the Need-Led Innovation Process, a systematic and proven approach to 'needs' finding, designed to de-risk the invention of suitable innovative technologies that take into account the important stakeholders of current healthcare and industry settings. Oxford Healthtech Labs also has a particular focus on social entrepreneurship during the fellowship programme.


Oxford Healthtech Labs offers two programmes, the Global Insight Fellowships (GIF) programme and the Reuben College (1KN) programme.
