The North West Coast Research and Innovation Awards 2018 is a collaborative celebration event hosted by the Innovation Agency, Academic Health Science Network for the North West Coast, NIHR Clinical Research Network: North West Coast (CRN NWC), and NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care North West Coast (CLAHRC NWC).

The purpose of the event is to celebrate successes of the excellent work being undertaken across the North West region in relation to clinical research, reducing health inequalities and innovation.
 

          

Young patient research ambassador, 17 year old Sophie Ainsworth, won the Outstanding Contribution to Patient and Public Involvement in Research Award at the 2017 awards.
 

At the event’s core is the desire to demonstrate how clinical research and innovation efforts have had an impact on patient care across the North West Coast.

The awards are aimed at a variety of stakeholders including NHS organisations, industry partners, academic partners, third sector organisations, local authorities and/or other collaborations working in health innovation.

 

 

 Finalists from each category will be invited to attend the awards ceremony which takes place from 6pm on Thursday 8th March, 2018 in Preston.
