Innovate UK is the UK’s innovation agency and do two things to help companies de-risk technological innovations: Fund and Connect. Over the past 12 months there have been a number of changes to the way Innovate UK is structured, the support it provides and its engagement at a regional level.
At this internal staff briefing session, the new Innovate UK Wales Manager, Jon Wood, will introduce some of those changes and explore what they mean for Cardiff University and the companies we engage with. The event will also be an opportunity for us to highlight to Jon where we see some of the translational innovation challenges and opportunities, and promote any ideas we might have for how Innovate UK can engage more effectively at a regional level.
The briefing will take place over a lunchtime session to allow more staff to participate and a light buffet lunch will be provided. Registration is required.
