North West Coast
Research and Innovation Awards 2022

23 June


The 2022 awards are an opportunity to pay tribute to teams and individuals who have gone the extra mile during the pandemic.​

The North West Coast Research and Innovation Awards 2022 celebrate success and the excellent work being undertaken in health and care across the region during an unprecedented time.​

Hosted by the Innovation AgencyNIHR Clinical Research Network North West Coast (CRN NWC); and Applied Research Collaboration North West Coast (ARC NWC), the awards are an opportunity to demonstrate the impact of clinical research and innovation on health and social care.​

The event will showcase some of the best research and innovation in NHS organisations, industry and academic partners, third sector organisations, local authorities and other collaborators in health innovation.​

We are delighted that our two integrated care systems, for Cheshire and Merseyside and for Lancashire and South Cumbria, are sponsoring two new awards this year – for sustainability and for addressing health inequalities.
