More than 30 Israeli companies have accessed support to help bring health and medical technology innovations to the North of England in the last year, the Northern Health Science Alliance and UK Israel Tech Hub has announced.
A strong pipeline of healthcare companies in Israel have engaged with the NHSA in the 12 months since a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the NHSA and Israel was signed.
The joint-working arrangement with the UK Israel Tech Hub was signed by the NHSA and British Ambassador to Israel David Quarrey at last year’s MIXiii-Biomed conference.
Keith Miller, head of corporate engagement at NHSA, said: “We have been delighted with the level of interest and enthusiasm from the Israeli companies we have worked with during the last year.
“Israel has a thriving life sciences industry that is generating exciting healthcare innovations that have the potential to benefit patients here in the North of England and the UK. The MoU has played a pivotal role in deepening links between the North and Israel, which has helped us build a strong continuous pipeline of healthcare companies from one of the most innovative countries direct to the North of England.”
The NHSA returned to MIXiii-Biomed in Tel Aviv this month as, together with UK Israel Tech Hub and the UK BioIndustry Association, it led its first delegation of northern life sciences organisations to the conference.
