Total Innovations Europe Ltd is the latest health and wellbeing business to expand into premises at Plymouth Science Park.
Established in 2014, Total Innovation Europe provides business innovation and support to manufacturers, suppliers and providers in the health and social care sectors, helping businesses working in diagnosis, therapeutics or medical devices to realise efficiencies and boost business growth.
The firm’s move to the Park comes a month after Plymouth Science Park announced that a regional centre of health technology excellence will be developed in the city, following a successful bid for £1.03m to the Heart of the South West LEP’s Getting Building Fund by Plymouth Science Park in partnership with the University of Plymouth, Plymouth City Council, and private sector partner, Renishaw.
The move to Plymouth Science Park will enable Total Innovations Europe to work with regional universities and businesses already established in the region, as well as new businesses supported by the Health Tech Innovation Hub.
With offices already located in Surrey, Cambridge and Bristol, the Plymouth office will support Total Innovations Europe’s commitment to customer service no matter where they are working within the South of England.
Total Innovations Europe played an important role during the pandemic, and throughout 2020 supported the Department of Health and Social Care with the later round of commercial contracting of COVID-19 testing. Total Innovations Europe worked to ensure that suppliers and commercial contracts were awarded with the appropriate commercial compliance in place. This work supported the continuation of high rates of COVID-19 testing which has been paramount to informing the UK government’s approach to the pandemic.
Craig Hallett, Director at Total Innovations Europe said: “We are proud to work with cutting edge organisations and strive to provide the commercial support they require including new technologies for rapid diagnostic technologies. Our passion is to reduce the financial burdens on healthcare providers, by achieving savings and efficiencies delivered through innovation. We’re looking forward to establishing our business at Plymouth Science Park and are delighted to be joining an established community of health-tech thought-leaders.”
Total Innovations Europe works with major clients on large scale projects which have lasting impact. Recently, Total Innovations Europe worked on a project to redefine funding streams within the NHS. The work has enabled the use of implantable epilepsy therapies for children, removing dependency on drugs and reducing the need for life-changing brain surgery. Implantable therapies are now being used across the South West to improve the quality of life for patients and their families who are able to receive ongoing medical supervision close to home.
Fay Davies, Business Development Manager at Plymouth Science Park, said: “Total Innovations Europe works with businesses at the cutting-edge of technology and health, a sector of huge importance to the Science Park and the wider region. We’re delighted to welcome them to the Park and look forward to supporting them as they connect and work with businesses in the region and across the country to improve the health landscape across the UK.”
