Partnering with the Nova Scotia Health Innovation Hub

News and Updates RSS  

Partnerships are at the heart of everything we do at the Nova Scotia Health Innovation Hub. We’re working to solve critical health challenges within our province by bringing innovators, researchers and industry partners together – through support, space and networks – in an ideal place to transform care. 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.

We want to work with you to transform health care in Nova Scotia through the best available evidence, well-researched solutions and new technologies. To explore partnership with us, reach out to our strategic partnership office at


At the Health Innovation Hub, we partner with businesses of all sizes to develop, test and try new products and technologies. If you have an idea for health innovation, we want to hear about it. 


The Health Innovation Hub engages nearly 300 researchers annually in more than 1,200 research projects. This translates into approximately $28 million in annual research revenues and provides support to more than 380 dedicated research personnel. Collaborate with us, alongside clinical champions, health care foundations, governments and the academic community to transform health care.


The Research Education Program enables Dalhousie University Research In Medicine (RIM) student placements to qualify through an agreement between Nova Scotia Health and the academic institution. If you’re a student with an idea and supervisor support, reach out to us.


The Health Innovation Hub is a resource for clinicians and staff. We work with health teams to identify solutions and help validate homegrown ideas. If you have a challenge that could benefit from an innovative lens, we’re here to help. 


Nova Scotia Health is one of the only provincial health care systems in Canada that offers a robust team of clinicians and researchers in a centralized system, and access to the entire population. From clinical trials to health system innovations, we offer diverse patient populations and a breadth of clinicians looking to advance the standard of care. 

With proven coordinated leadership across government, world-class research capacity and streamlined health system access, we are ready to work with you.
