Description

Part of the Solent Research, Innovation and Enterprise Conference 2018

Universities play a central role in building future economic value. Not only are they trainers of the next generation of talent, but also developers of knowledge which can be translated into business applications in the form of innovative processes, products and services.

Come along and find out how your business, no matter how big or small, can benefit from working with universities through access to specialised knowledge, talent, funding, facilities and equipment.

During the evening you will also have the opportunity to network with peers over light refreshments.
