It will be located on the Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park a stone's throw away from Sheffield Hallam University's Advanced Wellbeing Research Centre, and across the road from their National Centre of Excellence for Food Engineering.
The CCHT will bring together experts in health, academia and industry to develop cutting edge technologies that will deliver the world’s most advanced healthcare for children in an environment where research can be fast tracked and put into practice as a result of clinicians, patients, investors, technology firms and families all being in one site.
It aims to stimulate technical innovation, attract inward investment and reduce costs to the NHS, and will bring together areas of research and networks including The National TITCH (Technology Innovation Transforming Child Health) Network; The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Children and Young People MedTech Cooperative (NIHR CYP MedTech); NIHR Devices4Dignity MedTech Cooperative (NIHR D4D) and the NIHR Clinical Research Network.
