Read the Accelerate Covid-19 joint statement

Accelerate helps innovators in Wales to translate their ideas into solutions that can be adopted in health and care. If you have an idea for healthcare technology but are not sure what the next steps are, if you are a business and want to expand your offer, or if you are an allied health professional who has found a clever way of improving a process – then we would like to work with you.

Accelerate is led by Life Sciences Hub Wales, in partnership with Cardiff University (CIA), Swansea University (HTC) and University of Wales Trinity Saint David. (ATiC).  Rather than providing funding or grants, the programme offers the opportunity to tap into academic expertise, a thorough understanding of the life sciences ecosystem, and the latest facilities needed by innovators and entrepreneurs to realise their ideas.

Co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the Welsh European Funding Office, Welsh Government's Health and Social Services group, universities, Life Sciences Hub Wales, and the health boards, the ultimate aim of Accelerate is to create lasting economic value for Wales.

"Developing innovative new ways of preventing, treating and improving illnesses and diseases is a vital part of Welsh Government's vision for the future of the NHS in Wales. The Accelerate programme and the new Health Innovation Centres Fund will help to develop new ideas for health products and services more quickly for us to use in our NHS and across the world."

Vaughan Gething AM, Minister for Health and Social Services, Welsh government
