CHILL  - Centre for Health Innovation, Leadership and Learning


Nottingham University Business School has over 20 years' experience as a leader in health research and education.

In 2012 we formed CHILL to bring together extensive health-related research and teaching expertise.

As part of this we offer an Executive Healthcare MBA (one of the first specialist healthcare MBAs in the UK).

We have expanded our work by developing closer relationships with our collaborators and partners including regional care providers, secured research funding, undertaken service-facing evaluations and developed new teaching and learning.

Our growing community of doctoral students is at the forefront of designing cutting-edge research with our partner organisations.

Nationally we work with NHS England and have benefitted from the support of the Health Foundation and research funding from bodies such as the National Institute for Health Research and ESRC. Internationally we have research activities with partners in Brazil, the United States, Japan, Argentina, Bhutan, India, Taiwan, Norway, Australia and China.

Activities and events

CHILL organises a range of activities and events to which all our collaborators and partners are invited. These include:

  • monthly lunch-time discussion groups (Brown Bags) that focus on new policy and research developments
  • regular seminars for an academic and practice audience
  • an annual doctoral student workshop to showcase and support the development of our future research leaders
