One HealthTech Edinburgh’s Festive Celebration

Celebrating our community’s successes in 2019

For this year’s December event we’re planning to celebrate the OHT Edinburgh community’s successes, big and small, in our usual friendly and relaxed style! If you’ve got something you’d like to share with the community - be that achievements, requests or shout-outs - let us know on the registration form or by emailing


Whatever your individual identity, background and sector, please join us! This festive celebration is the perfect opportunity to come along, find out what we’re all about and help us to build a truly inclusive healthtech community here in Edinburgh.

During the networking we will have a specific area to celebrate everyone’s successes. This will include rotating slides with individuals’/companies’ achievements, requests and shout-outs. Microsoft will also have a separate area for you to play with some cool tech for accessibility.



We have a little fund to make our events more accessible (woop woop!)

If for any reason there are barriers to engaging in the community we invite anyone to apply for up to £30 (but ask for more if you need, worth a try) per person per event to cover personal costs to improve this. The money can cover just about anything, including but not limited to child/other care, taxis if travelling around is tricky, trains if you live out in the countryside, a live-captioner, recording of the event or loss of earnings if you have a side job along your studies. Who are we to judge! If you feel it’s a barrier, we agree too. Find out more 

If you can't get a babysitter and need to bring your kids along, that's fine too! You just need to take responsibility for them at all times and, if possible, let us know in advance.
