Hi there, Scotland HealthTechies!
So, what’s the One HealthTech Edinburgh Hub all about? We’re glad to you asked...
We have a brilliantly collaborative and innovative environment here in Scotland and the main goal of our OHT hub is to amplify that. We help newbies (and oldies) to tap into this awesomeness though our supportive and inclusive community. We’re really lucky that Scotland has a booming tech industry and a wealth of companies (big and small), academics and NHS teams all working to improve health and care in many different ways. We believe that bringing people together from as diverse a range of backgrounds as possible can spark ideas and connections and lead to amazing things!
We’ve run events on a whole host of interesting topics (e.g. using health data, stimulating innovation, evaluating interventions, careers) and we’ve got loads more up our sleeves. We get healthtech superstars to come and share their wisdom, but we also love to encourage that all-important networking by making it less daunting and more fun (Pacman networking works brilliantly!). Come along to our next event to see for yourselves…
As the first Scotland-based hub, we’ve been running here in Edinburgh since Spring 2018, but we’re also keen to help other hubs set up in cities across Scotland. It’s super easy to get started and all the other hubs are really supportive so if you’re interested just get in touch!
Big OHT hugs,
Catherine, Michael, Kathrin, Pamela, Claudia, Elsie and Fi
