Rationale

The Digital Incubator is our environment where we nurture potential projects before they go live. The Incubator has proved an effective way to manage and spin up successful projects like our Winter Pressures project.

New Incubator projects come from the Priority Setting exercises, Safety Challenge Innovation Fund events (previous; current), and our network of NHS, industry and NIHR Patient Safety contacts.
