MIC drop launches HRCs

By April 24, 2024No Comments

From 1st April, 14 new HealthTech Research Centres (HRCs) replaced the former MedTech and IVD Co-operatives hosted by the National Institute for Health and care Research (NIHR).

Chief Executive Helen Dent presented to the NIHR team to maintain our ties into the new structure.  The HRCs are built to pull together healthcare professionals and industry.

Helen set out how how BIVDA’s position across the sector, significant member reach, and ability to represent businesses capabilities and requirements make us a key enabler for a joined up sector. By facilitating relationships between HRCs and industry, BIVDA will support innovation and tests being delivered to patients sooner.
