Ageing and Health - Re-inventing the Wheel
Thursday, 9 February 2012 from 17:30 to 18:30 (GMT)
World-class knowledge pooled to inspire new business opportunities
Newcastle Science City in collaboration with Newcastle University's Changing Age for Business is pooling the city’s world-class scientific research to help launch new North East products and services.
The ‘Business Opportunities’ programme has been developed to provide entrepreneurs and innovative companies with in-depth knowledge of specific market opportunities;
These commercial opportunities, which have been validated by experts in their field, address real-life challenges impacting on social and corporate issues in the areas of ageing & health and sustainability.
During a series of briefing sessions, the Newcastle Science City business support team will use ‘opportunity canvases’ to paint a picture of each commercial opportunity to the business community. This unique insight provides a ready-made needs analysis to help accelerate the process of bringing a product to market.
Businesses inspired to develop ideas sparked by the sessions will then be offered support to take them forward. Companies with existing ideas, meanwhile, can test them against the specific market knowledge that has been collated.
The following business opportunities are to be presented on 9th February 2012:
Opportunity 1: Re-inventing the Wheel: - What can be done to prevent the spread of Health Associated Infections and ensure the infection free movement of equipment with wheels?
The opportunity canvas will be available to view on 27th January 2012
Briefing Date: Thursday, February 9, 5:30pm-6:30pm
Venue: St James’ Park, Newcastle NE1 4ST
