Following the success of last year’s Innovation Champions Showcase event, we are pleased to announce that we will be joining forces with colleagues in the North East, the North West, and Greater Manchester to host a bigger showcase event this autumn.

Northern Innovation Champions Showcase and Networking Event: Adoption and Spread of Innovations

JOIN US ON: Thursday 12th October 2017, 09:30 – 16:00
AT: The Queens Hotel, City Square, Leeds, LS1 1PJ

The 2017 Northern Innovation Showcase event will bring together four AHSNs as a collaboration of Innovation Scouts, Innovation Champions and Q Fellows from different regions. The aim is to share your innovation projects and experiences and facilitate better networking between the regions.

The theme this year will focus on adoption and spread of innovations and will explore:
• What do we know about what makes innovations spread?
• How can we use models and theories to understand more about the diffusion of innovations?
• How can we put this into practice?
• What exciting things are already happening on the ground in each of the four regions?

Why attend?
This event showcases innovations that have been developed and deployed within the NHS from people who have been there and done it. It provides you with a unique opportunity to hear about successful innovations and how Innovation Champions and other NHS staff have developed and shared them.

You will also hear from an innovation specialist who will share models and theory about spread and adoption and how to translate this into practice.

If you would like to attend, please register using the link below. Please ensure that you select ‘Yorkshire & Humber’ when registering to ensure that an even allocation of places are available across all four northern AHSN regions.
