Implementing Innovations on a Global Scale

Biomedicine and biotechnology are considered key for improving health and alleviating poverty, but they often fail to bring about the results that are promised. To address challenges of health technology functioning, it is core to acknowledge the inextricable connection between societal and technological development. This specialisation will help you to understand these processes of co-evolution and to apply methods of contextual co-creation to improve technology transfer and implementation.
