The Platform for the revitalization and innovation of the industrial capacities of the NHS and its effective transfer to the productive sector will work so that high-quality innovation reaches the business fabric and the national and international market. The Ministry of Science and Innovation has granted the hospital 'hub' a budget of almost 900.000 euros to carry out its work.

The director of the Parc Taulí Research and Innovation Institute (I3PT), Dr. Lluís Blanch, will coordinate the Platform for the revitalization and innovation of the industrial capacities of the National Health System (SNS) and its effective transfer to the productive sector, giving support for R & D & I in Biomedicine and Health Sciences. This innovative hub consists of 18 hospitals (1) of reference in the State will be coordinated by Dr. Blanch from Sabadell, from January 2021 to December 2023.

The aim of the platform is to effectively boost the industrial capacity generated from the NHS and the real transfer of research results to the productive fabric, thus ensuring scientific and technical excellence, equity and efficiency in the use of available resources. “From the platform, we will work in an agile way to increase the research and the applicable research and so that his transfer to the companies, the national market and the international, was a reality. This two-way communication will be very good for both public health and private actors, but above all it will be because it will lead to an agile response to the needs of patients, ”explains Dr. Blanch.

To be one of the members of the state research and innovation platform, the I3PT has obtained funding of 394.350 euros and, on the other hand, has a budget of 890.000 euros to carry out the coordination of the same. The resolution of the grants awarded by the Ministry of Science and Innovation of the central government was published a few days ago by the Instituto de Salud Carlos III (ISCIII).

In addition, the I3PT, as a participating node of the platform, will offer its services to professionals from other hospitals in Catalonia such as the Consorci Sanitari Integral, the Consorci Sanitari Terrassa, the Fundació Privada Hospital Asil de Granollers, the Consorci Alt Penedès-Garraf Health Center and the Terrassa Mutual Society. These hospitals are part of the XISCAT network (Catalan Innovation Network born from the need and interest of sharing good practices and experiences in the management of innovation) and are located outside the metropolitan area of ​​Barcelona, ​​an area where most of Catalonia's industrial fabric is concentrated and a large part of Catalan GDP is generated in health. From XISCAT many synergies have emerged between the different actors in the environment, facilitating multiple public-private collaborations that have turned Parc Taulí into a reference center in innovation.

The Parc Taulí Research and Innovation Institute (I3PT)

The I3PT was one of the first research centers in Spain associated with a hospital that created an innovation unit, and also one of the pioneers in implementing a quality system for research and innovation (UNE 166002). During these years, I3PT has been an important and active member of the Spanish Innovation Platform in Medical and Health Technologies (ITEMAS), contributing to its development and growth since its creation in 2010.

Thanks to the experience acquired during all these years, I3PT has evolved and advanced in its model of innovation, adapting it to the needs of patients, their professionals, administrations and available resources, in order to to offer more and more excellence and efficiency. In this sense, its model of continuous improvement is committed to a complete support of its professionals, attention to the needs of patients and a full alignment between the Institute and the hospital in all phases of the innovation process, from the capture of the idea until the transfer to the market or its internal implementation.

From the field of Health can contribute significantly to the growth of the industrial sector of the country, at the same time as the Platform dynamization and innovation of the industrial capacities of the NHS and its effective transfer to the productive sector is a key instrument to help to implement agile and real way this purpose.
