The UK at Health Innovation Week Toronto

Join the UK’s Department for International Trade (DIT) at Health Innovation Week in Toronto to learn about opportunities and support available to Canadian companies looking to invest in the UK life sciences industry.

The UK Government is invested in continuing to drive Britain’s world-leading life sciences innovation, committing $362m CAD to data, early diagnosis, and precision medicine innovation; $312m CAD to development of advanced therapies, medicines, and vaccines; and $168.9m CAD to promote healthy ageing.
