In today's world, innovation is not just about looking inward anymore.  We understand that great solutions can come from anywhere, and we are very interested in learning about some truly innovative solutions that we can help develop and provide to our customers.  

That's why we've come together to launch ConnectUp.  Brought to you by the Weir GroupDoosan BabcockSubsea 7SP Energy Networks, and Stena Line,  ConnectUp is a collaborative event that aims to help us facilitate and promote innovative new partnerships with SMEs and entrepreneurs. At this inaugural event, you'll not only have the chance to learn about key technology challenges that we are facing, but you'll also be given the opportunity to share and discuss your innovative solutions with us, all while learning about new opportunities and meeting like-minded individuals and organisations.  

You can expect to see presentations from industry and innovation practitioners; learn about opportunities offered organisations such as Scottish Enterprise, High Value Manufacturing Catapult, Data Lab, Supplier Development Programme, and many more; and take part in multiple networking opportunities, including a speed networking event which will guarantee you conversation time with the company of your choice.  

This event will be focussed on two key themes Industry 4.0 and Energy Efficiency, but we are interested in meeting innovators with technology solutions across all disciplines. 

Industry 4.0: Commonly known as the fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0 refers to growing trends in automation and data exchange across systems and technologies.  It includes the Internet of Things, smart sensors, and cloud computing. 

Energy Efficiency: Energy efficient solutions aim to reduce the amount of energy required to provide products and services. Energy efficiency can be achieved by products or processes that can reduce the energy consumed, or recover waste energy to be re-used.
