There is a global recognition that there needs to be a level of educational support to provide training opportunities that equip key staff with the necessary skills to become effective entrepreneurs and innovators within the Life Science and Healthcare sectors. Furthermore, with the expansion of the principles of healthcare enterprise and innovation in the public and private sectors globally, health and social care service providers require staff (at all levels) to have the key service planning, commercialisation and commissioning skills necessary to provide a personalised, high quality patient experience within financial budgets.
