Book online

By registering for this event you will find out about opportunities to collaborate with research institutions and access the NHS, as well as hear from Shivom how they established their business in London.

Interactive breakout sessions throughout mean you will be able to connect and ask the speakers any questions as well as network with other attendees.

If you have a product/service which is already in use in your market and want to sell into the NHS, then you can apply to attend an in-depth session with the Academic Health Science Network whose role is to bridge the gap between industry and the NHS. You will learn how the NHS works, and discuss how to position your product to appeal to both clinicians and buyers. *Space is limited to 10 companies during the 45 min breakout session*

This event is open to all international life sciences companies considering expansion to London.
