What is Innovation?

Innovation is one of the means that can be used to develop new ways of doing things, ideas, products and services. Public service-led innovation allows the public sector to deliver more effective and efficient services and gives greater scope for business to generate innovative solutions for the public sector. Innovation isn’t just the successful exploitation of new ideas but the willingness to test and try out something new, that isn’t guaranteed to work, but has the potential to make impactful and sustainable change a reality

What does the Innovation team do?

We work with colleagues across CTMUHB to identify, explore and deliver new activity ideas and approaches. We specialise in rapid digitals and physical prototyping of new products based on ideas form staff but also work across sustainability, recycling and support new approaches to old problems.    

Who do you support?

The CTM Innovation team supports innovative activity across Cwm Taf Morgannwg working with colleagues across health and social care, local authorities and the 3rd sector, Universities; businesses and Welsh Government to build and enable a culture of innovation via engaged and motivated people.

How to work with you?

As innovative approaches can be broad and wide-ranging so and support the small team we have in place can provide. This includes practical measures such as supporting bids, writing case studies, identifying funding opportunities alongside linking to All Wales Innovation Organisations such as the Life Science Hub.
