Launched in February 2020, the Novartis Biome UK provides a platform for health tech entrepreneurs in the UK to work with Novartis and connect via our growing network of Digital Innovation Hubs around the world. The UK Innovation Hub is located at the Novartis UK headquarters in White City – a growing and emerging life sciences hub in West London.
Our vision for the Novartis Biome UK is to be a catalyst for impactful digital collaborations and our purpose is to be a point of convergence for digital innovation as we strive to become the number one partner to the NHS and the tech ecosystem in the UK. We aspire to harness the latest science and technology to realize the healthcare solutions of tomorrow, co-created with the NHS, to improve and extend the lives of patients.
This includes innovative ways to provide access to medicine to more patients, accelerated through the BIOME. It also asks for a much wider cross-industry collaboration to advance health outcomes and unlock potentials to positively impact lives. We can learn more from consumer or fast-moving consumer goods industries in how we develop tech solutions that work for patients.
