We are looking for a talented Research Fellow (R&D Technical Innovator) to join the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre (DHI) at the Innovation School. The RF will support the successful delivery of the DHI's Moray Rural Centre of Excellence programme.
The DHI is a leading centre for creative collaboration that focuses on improving the delivery of healthcare in Scotland. We are one of seven Innovation Centres funded by the Scottish Funding Council, which support transformational collaboration between universities and business. A partnership between GSA and The University of Strathclyde, the DHI is uniquely placed to create networks connecting academics with designers, healthcare providers, charities and other key stakeholders.
Our team works with health and social care professionals, and users of health care services, to design health and care solutions for the future. With organisations, we use design innovation to support enabling & embedding innovation capacity. Design Innovation can act as a guide for industry to rethink an aspect of the business model, to define new products and services or explore new markets. Through design innovation we view issues from a variety of angles, considering the economic, socio-cultural and behavioural factors that play into successful innovation.
We believe that for innovation to be sustainable, it needs to evolve through direct engagement with the people for whom it is designed. We are experts in creatively directing an inclusive and iterative process, working with people to develop and prototype ideas that lead to robust solutions and valuable outcomes.
