Oxford Healthtech Labs
Training the next generation of global (social) innovators
Oxford Healthtech Labs teaches the Needs-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.
Oxford Healthtech Labs is supported by EIT Health and is the next generation of programmes that emerged from Oxford Biodesign. Oxford Healthtech Labs builds on years of experience running needs-driven innovation training programmes at the University of Oxford. It is a joint initiative between the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford and Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, in collaboration with Sorbonne University and Sanofi Espoir Foundation. EPL-HIT is partially funded by the National Productivity Investment Fund, of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
