European health and social care experts at the SBE for the CSM Symposium

A new research event hosted by the Centre for Service Management (CSM) will be held on 11 September.

The 1st European Health and Social Care Service Innovation Symposium will include renowned researchers from different service disciplines and seven European countries to share their views.

The event will consist of individual presentations and a roundtable discussion involving the audience. In addition, Dr Laurence Gardiner, Research Challenges Development Manager (Health and Wellbeing), will give an overview of social challenges and an introduction to the Horizon 2020 Work Programme.

This event is the second in a line of events that CSM is hosting. On 10 September, the Centre is holding a collaborative network formation workshop that will bring together colleagues from CSM, the School of Business and Economics (SBE), Loughborough Design School (LDS), several CSM Advisory Board members (both practitioners and academics) and the Symposium presenters, to explore synergies and potential collaboration projects in the area of service innovation in health and social care based on patient and user involvement.

Resulting research projects in this area would aim at increasing the value for patients, improving efficiency and opening up avenues for national and international commercialisation.
