The Health Innovation Campus is a pioneering new project that will bring together innovators, academics, entrepreneurs, businesses, local government, citizens and health care providers.  The aim of the development, based beside the University's Bailrigg campus, is to drive advances in technologies, products and ways of working to improve health and healthcare.  The vision is to create a world-class centre of excellence for innovation and research in population health.  

The revenue programme will build a thriving, sustainable HIC industrial cluster network in advance of the building opening, identifying SMEs that can co-locate within the facility once established and then to deliver further support to Lancashire SMEs using the new facilities across its first year. The £2 million revenue project will deliver a programme of innovation support to 300 eligible Lancashire based SMEs providing  a  range  of  opportunities  to  accelerate  digital innovation  into  the  health  and  care  marketplace,  from interventions  via  masterclasses to  raise awareness  of  opportunities  within  sector  and  thematic  workshops  to  explore  challenges  and enhance  innovation.  There  will  be intense  development  and  applied  research  programmes  to support  commercialisation  of  new  products  and  processes.
