Working with us

Our Partners

We work with industry through its links with our academic, NHS and third sector partners.  We will explore any potential industry collaborations identified via Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network (GM AHSN) and their Innovation Nexus, which aims to help industry to do business with the NHS.


In developing our industry engagement strategy, we have assessed how best any work with industry fits with the nature of our CLAHRC, its themes of work, our existing relationships with our partners, and the Greater Manchester context within which the CLAHRC operates.


We aim to identify and exploit opportunities to collaborate with industry across our programme, where this aligns with our strategic objectives and brings additional value and impact to our existing and future programmes of work.


The Innovation Nexus brings together information and resources to help guide companies through the complexity of working with the NHS, and enable access to expertise and specialist services offered directly or via Innovation Nexus Associates, as well as highlighting funding opportunities.

During 2018 we are working with the following organisations:

We have previously worked with these organisations and the results of the work we collaborated on are in the relevant areas of the website:
