Oxford Healthtech Labs

Training the next generation of global (social) innovators


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 Enterprise Process Labs - High Intensity Training (EPL-HIT) programme.
