SUPPORTING THE UK DIGITAL STRATEGY
Digital Pioneers Opportunity
In the recently published Digital Strategy, Health Tech was described as an emerging sector that provides major underexploited economic opportunities to the UK, as well as helping to create the world-class public services that our people deserve.
Eastern AHSN is keen to play its part in supporting the implementation of the digital strategy and we do this through supporting the Health Tech industry access the health and care public sector and by supporting health and care organisations successfully implement their local digital strategies known as local digital road maps.
As part of the STP support package, Eastern AHSN is looking to support up to 10 digital pioneers as they implement their local digital roadmaps. Support provided will include:
- Access to industry experts through a series of day raids, webinars and networking events.
- A financial bursary of £5,000 to spend on digital skills training for the pioneer and their employing organisation.
- Six personal coaching sessions.
At the end of the programme, each digital pioneer will be required to present a summary of their year and progress made to a panel of regional senior leaders. The panel will choose the pioneer that has created the biggest impact and this award will attract an additional financial bursary of £10,000.
Applications close on 13 April.
