Support available for medical and healthcare SMEs
Warwickshire-based SMEs in the medical and healthcare sectors can tap into expertise from a programme run by Coventry University Enterprises.
The Innovative Coventry and Warwickshire Place Test Bed Project supports SMEs by offering free services including:
- Workshops to enhance knowledge and skills in areas such as new product development and user testing
- Usability tests and user evaluations carried out on the SME's behalf to provide impartial feedback which can be used in developing and marketing products.
Working closely with public and private sectors, CUE Business Solutions helps companies to innovate, grow and internationalise and works with local and regional governments to find and shape best practice in infrastructure development and sustainable innovation support.
Nina Jassal, CUE Business Solutions business delivery manager said: "CUE has developed a comprehensive range of services to support SMEs to refine and scale up their operations and are here to advise and support SMEs or people thinking of starting a small business.
"If you have an idea for a health or well-being product that you need help with developing, want to find out what your potential customers think about your product or would like to hear from a health expert who specialises in your product area, we can help."
To be eligible for support from this project a company must be an SME operating in the digital healthcare, assistive technology or e-health sectors OR be developing a product that might be applied to these areas. Companies must be based in Coventry or Warwickshire and have a product to develop, evaluate and/or take to market.
