The Digital Health Enterprise Zone programme is a £13 million partnership led by the University of Bradford and backed by investment from City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council and the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
We are enabling the development of digital health innovations that help prevent and manage long-term health conditions, and improve the quality of life for people, carers and families by enabling quick and easy access to the right care and information. We do this by developing a community of health and care professionals, businesses, researchers, and learners. These people work together to develop innovative solutions for the health and care sector, that can be properly trialled in the right environment, and proven to work on a larger scale and commercially.
We are creating two complimentary innovation spaces:
- Digital Exchange, a business incubation, meetings and events space in Little Germany, Bradford City Centre
- Phoenix Building, on the University of Bradford City Campus (opening in summer 2017) for research, teaching, and testing of digital health innovations.
DHEZ is home to the Digital Catapult Centre Yorkshire, the Yorkshire node of the London based Digital Catapult. They are helping businesses to use the power of data to unlock new value from the data value chain and the Internet of Things for digital innovation developments. We work closely with them by providing complementary business services.
