Event description

Description

Innovation is perceived as the new answer to many problems affecting society: from health to cybersecurity, transport, environment, energy efficiency, as well as media, fashion and the whole creative industry. But how can your business truly harness its potential and commercialise innovation?

Join us for this lunchtime event where expert speakers representing Innovate UK and Enterprise Europe Network will guide you through the range of opportunities available to accelerate the growth of your business. There will be time after the presentations for Q&A so that your specific queries can be answered and you get practical advice on how to access new international markets, how to find R&D or commercial partners, or how to identify the most suitable funding opportunity.
