Our values

Our mission is to improve the quality of patient care through industry partnership and collaboration.

By widening access to world-class facilities, equipment and expertise, we are accelerating the development of innovative medical technologies, services and devices for organisations across a broad range of medical and health sectors.

Our history

Our journey began in the late 2010s, as medical technology researchers at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) identified some of the challenges surrounding medical product development and getting innovations to market as quickly as possible.

With support from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership in 2021, the Medical Technologies Innovation Facility (MTIF) was born – a £23M dual-site research and development facility designed to strengthen alliances between scientists, engineers, clinicians and entrepreneurs.
