Clinical innovation is driven by curiosity, creativity and a passion for meeting the needs of healthcare professionals and industry.
We believe that true clinical innovation is about creating something unique that changes the face of healthcare and can be rolled out seamlessly.

Clinical Innovation Hub partners
The Clinical Innovation Hub is home to the Clinical Innovation Accelerator, a partner in the Accelerate programme.
Accelerate is a revolutionary support programme established to facilitate and speed up the translational pipeline from the identification of ‘real’ healthcare needs, through to the delivery of evidence-based innovation.
Our team of dedicated innovation specialists in the Clinical Innovation Accelerator (CIA) can help businesses to develop new projects and future products and services enabling co-production with direct input from healthcare and research specialists.
The Clinical Innovation Partnership
We are extremely proud of our close partnerships with both the NHS and healthcare industry. As a result of these partnerships, Cardiff has been acknowledged as a centre of Excellence for Precision Medicine.
The importance of clinical innovation in bringing about patient, health, economic and societal benefit is recognised by both the University and Cardiff and Vale University Health Board. These shared goals have been captured by the formation of the Clinical Innovation Partnership, which helps to facilitate a close working relationship between the health board and Cardiff University.
This partnership has led to the establishment of the Clinical Innovation Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT). This unique group of experts brings together the expertise of clinicians, academics with that of industry and local government partners to offer advice and support.
The Clinical Innovation Hub plays an integral role in this team.
