Venue - 3M Buckley Innovation Centre, Huddersfield

Our health is one of those things we take for granted, until it's affected in some way.


And it's not just about physical health, our well-being is much broader than that, but often neglected.

But as with most things, careful, thoughtful design can make all the difference.

So we're delighted to be partnering with Huddersfield University as they prepare to launch their National Health Innovation Campus , which will transform the way healthcare and healthy living is delivered and supported across the North of England.

So we'll be hearing from some of the champions behind this project, and those organisations who will be bringing it to life.

Speakers include -

Prof. Liz Towns-Andrews, Huddersfield University

As 3M Professor of Innovation, Liz knows something about making great things happen. She's now heading up the development of the campus, starting with the £75m investent to create the Daphne Steele Building, named after UKs first black matron.

With a vision to bring together teaching, research and public services to jointly deliver health benefits acoss the North, Liz will outline the aims of the campus, and the challenges they're intending to overcome.

Further speakers will be announced soon
