You may have heard that Innovate UK and partners STFC, KTN, EEN and the NWBLT are holding an innovation event for businesses on Thursday 8th February 2018.
The purpose of the event is to:
- bring the partners together to meet businesses who don’t already know us
- demonstrate the importance of innovation
- show the businesses how they can innovate
- showcase the range of support we offer them
It’s to be on STFC Sci-Tech Daresbury campus on 8th Feb. It has a cross-sectorial emphasis, and will be relevant to all businesses with innovation potential. Free to attend.
We have some fantastic big-name speakers, including Juergen Maier and very senior executives from Innovate UK and STFC. SME businesses from the North West will also star, providing lessons and inspiration for others to innovate. The agenda is on the registration page.
This is a significant milestone for us in the North West. It’s exactly one year since Innovate UK’s national conference was hosted in Manchester. This event in February will provide a launch-pad of more to come, including our involvement in the 2018 International Business Festival in June.
