The Scottish Institute for Enterprise and the Digital Health & Care Institute have signed a new MOU renewing their strategic partnership intended to boost digital health innovations in Scotland by engaging students in activities that highlight the opportunities in this sector.
DHI exists to support innovation and the commercialisation of academic research and excellence in digital health and care. This close relationship will see students participating in SIE’s activities continue to benefit from these extended opportunities.
DHI was a founding partner in SIE’s Scottish Innovative Student Award programme, now in its second year, which has seen students across Scotland prepare for the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the acceleration of disruptive innovations in almost every field. Seven HE Institutions are now accredited to run SISA Level 1 workshops and the numbers continue to grow.
Stuart Deed, Strategic Partnering Director at DHI, said:
“Working with SIE allows us to combine our expertise with SIE’s experience in enterprise education and truely collaborate with institutions to reach their students. It’s an excellent fit that we’re very pleased to continue to support.”
Fiona Godsman, CEO of SIE continued:
“We’re delighted to continue our close working relationship with the DHI who share our belief that encouraging and supporting innovative capacity in our students is critical to Scotland’s future success.”
