Event Details

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 2: Support not Care: - What alternatives to the traditional care system can be offered to older people who don’t have medical conditions but who do need support to stay independent?


The opportunity canvas will be available to view on 27th January 2012

Briefing Date: Thursday, February 9, 6:30pm-7:30pm

Venue: St James’ Park, Newcastle NE1 4ST
