The West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) invites you to attend their Annual Awards Ceremony, which will take place online for the very first time, on Tuesday 30 March 2021.

The awards reflect the WMAHSN's dual aim of improving health and creating wealth, as well as the organisation's key priorities and themes. 

This year the categories are:

  • ‘Above and Beyond ‘ Adoption of Innovation Award

  • Mental Health Resilience Innovation Award
  • Meridian Innovation and Improvement Champion Award

This year the panel would like to recognise the West Midlands response to COVID, and shine a light on rapid innovation. The Meridian Award will be awarded to any COVID related submission from the above categories, that stood out to the panel.

We are pleased to welcome back our host from last year's Awards, Des Coleman.

The awards will start at 6.30 pm and conclude by 8.30 pm, all within the comfort of your own homes! but don't let this stop the glitz and glamour like at last year's awards!

We hope as many people as possible can share their fun and celebrations through social media, and we will post regular updates, and award announcements via Twitter - please join in!

Organiser West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN)

Organiser of Meridian Celebration of Innovation Awards 2020

The West Midlands Academic Health Science Network leads, catalyses and drives co-operation, collaboration and productivity between academia, industry, health and care providers and commissioners, and citizens, and accelerates the adoption of innovation to generate continuous improvement in the region’s health and wealth.

This will be achieved in a collaborative environment in which member organisations are mutually supportive and in which the technology-rich West Midlands’ life sciences community is fully integrated and generating additional investment. Innovation will be spread at scale and pace regionally, nationally and internationally. WMAHSN, its partners and the public will celebrate the region’s success as a centre for innovation, health and wealth and as the first digitally-enabled health economy in England. The improved generation and adoption of innovation will benefit the economy by giving the region’s academic institutions and life sciences industry a competitive advantage.
