Event description

Description

Innovation is at the heart of economic, social and cultural development. It drives productivity, raises living standards and helps to lay foundations for tomorrow’s world. Businesses that embrace new products, processes and technologies become more productive, challenge existing business models and grow quickly, therefore business innovation is fundamental to economic prosperity.

The First Minister of Wales, Rt Hon. Carwyn Jones AM will be giving an address at the conference as well as a number of innovation experts who will be announced shortly.

Why attend?

The CBI’s Innovation Conference will spell out to local businesses just how essential innovating as a business is to deliver economic growth in Wales and lift productivity. While there is great work being done across the UK, the broader picture is less rosy: investment in research and development (R&D) has stalled at around 1.7% of GDP for the last 30 years, falling well short of global averages (2.4%). The conference will set out the challenges, opportunities and solutions to get more Wales firms innovating. It is an event not to be missed.

The conference will also provide you with a chance to influence our policy work in this space. It will also provide you with details on how to access our latest innovation related intelligence.

We are immensely proud that the event will be held at the Cardiff School of Management. Companies that have already committed to take part as speakers or panel members include PwC, Openreach, Be The Spark and Cardiff Metropolitan University.

More details will be available shortly
