Health, wellbeing and care are at a crossroads. Demographic changes, population health challenges and financial constraints are placing unprecedented and unsustainable pressures on our health and social care system. We want and need to respond to these challenges in a radical way – utilising and capitalising on leading edge technology, research, innovation, working with entrepreneurs who see things differently.
Creating the right ecosystem to help and encourage entrepreneurs, SME’s, start-up businesses, academia, and the public sector is crucial. We will explore the capabilities offered by satellite technology including secure communication, connectivity, big data, remote sensing and monitoring.
We will be sharing opportunities that the Satellite Applications Catapult programme offers, stimulating innovation, solution focused thinking and dynamic action to help to meet the challenges we face.
The SW Centre of Excellence draws on the commercial and academic strengths of the region focusing on three areas of Smart Specialisation: Marine & Maritime, eHealth & Wellness and AgriTech.
Our role is to:
Ensure the key areas are linked to South West industry, Regional aspirations and strategy and user markets to foster new collaborations,
Identify key areas of current or potential satellite applications research strength,
Help the Satellite Catapult identify and bridge gaps in capability and capacity that can be strengthened to enable growth in the Smart Specialisation market sectors.Registration Data Requirements: First Name, Last Name, Job Title, Organisation Name, Email, Dietary Requirements, Disability
