Dr Jane Mullins, a researcher at the Awen Institute, gave a presentation last week regarding her work around dementia and the senses at the ATiC Symposium 2022: Accelerating Innovation in Health and Wellbeing.
The ATiC Symposium 2022 reflected on the impact and legacy of the ground-breaking Accelerate Wales programme, showcasing how Wales is accelerating innovation through NHS and academic collaboration, and empowering patients through user-centered research and technology innovation.
ATiC’s partners in Accelerate, which is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through Welsh Government, are Cardiff University’s Clinical Innovation Accelerator (CIA), Swansea University’s Healthcare Technology Centre (HTC), and Life Sciences Hub Wales, which leads the programme. Hywel Dda University Health Board and its TriTech Institute, of which ATiC and HTC are key academic partners, also joined with Accelerate for the Symposium.
The event highlighted how Accelerate has generated new collaborative opportunities and partnerships across sectors and institutions. It also looked to the future, as this phase of the Accelerate programme draws to a close at the end of December 2022.
