MediWales Connects is an all Wales NHS collaboration conference bringing together Welsh health boards, trusts and bodies within one place to connect & collaborate.

Part of the School of Management’s strategy and vision is to increase its collaboration within the medical and health sectors on a local and global scale. With an internationally diverse range of academic staff, the School of Management is actively engaging with industry partners on large-scale health and medical-oriented research projects.

As part of the day’s workshop sessions, there will be case studies from Hydro and AgorIP as well as details on the Llanelli Wellness and Life Science Village, bringing to life the partnerships that have been built with the University.

Professor Marc Clement, Dean of Swansea University School of Management, added:

‘We are delighted to support MediWales Connects Conference as headline sponsor. Our strategy focuses on sustainable economies, health and wellbeing, and digitisation and our association with MediWales reflects this. Globally and locally society faces many challenges and the collaborative involvement of business, education and government is crucial to success in meeting these.’
