As part of the Cambridge FestivalConnect: Health Tech is holding an event bringing together panellists at different stages of their career journey, to explore and highlight the resources and opportunities the Cambridge ecosystem of research, industry and entrepreneurship can offer.

Early career researchers are dynamic and flexible professionals who can work collaboratively to make positive changes across health tech, this panel discussion will explore their potential for interdisciplinary research and collaboration.

Panellists will reflect on their journey to date, and give their own perspective on opportunities for health tech research, followed by open Q&A discussion with attendees to unpack the best approaches for creating collaborations and engaging with industry and entrepreneurship.
