On Friday 24 June 2016 the EPSRC Image-Guided Therapies UK Network+ was launched at UCL.
The aim of the network is to fertilise and enhance collaboration across the UK IGT community and promote relationships with industry, supporting the ability to clinically translate IGT to realise patient benefit. The network will allow researchers at member institutions to collaborate and nurture interdisciplinary research ideas and proposals. Through engagement with industrial stakeholders, the network will provide a mechanism for transitioning EPSRC-funded research into clinical translation through the development of commercial products. Three networking events will be organised annually, in addition to a funding programme for proof-of-concept projects and support for early career mobility.
The EPSRC UK Image-Guided Therapies Network+ will be led by four academic institutions (University of Manchester, Imperial, University of Sheffield and University College London) and supported by a wider network of UK-based partner institutions and industry stakeholders. Management support will be provided by the UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering.
