Partnerships are at the heart of everything we do at the Nova Scotia Health Innovation Hub. Every day we build relationships and develop opportunities to drive patient impact through innovation. It’s why we provide a supportive and agile space for industry, researchers, multidisciplinary clinical teams, students, partners and investors to come together. Thanks to collective voices and a diversity of minds, we’re better able to develop, discover, and commercialize new knowledge, technology, products, systems, and solutions. That is, we’re better able to address the biggest health challenges facing Nova Scotians.
