In May 2021, the Global Delivery Group supported a joint webinar between the UCL Institute of Healthcare Engineering and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc).

Professor Shervanthi Homer-Vanniasinkam, (Professor of Surgery and Engineering in UCL Mechanical Engineering, consultant vascular surgeon at Leeds Infirmary, and delivery group member) provided the opening remarks, detailing her perspective as a clinician-academic. 

Researchers from both institutions shared their work in this field of healthcare engineering, from nano-sensors to tissue regeneration. 

Global Healthcare Engineering Symposium 2020

In November 2020, the Global Delivery Group organised a showcase of global healthcare engineering at UCL. The two-day, virtual event explored the importance of international partnerships, and practical ways of making these partnerships happen. UCL researchers provided case studies of succesful global collaboration, and we also heard from funders and UCL support teams that enable this to happen.
