Event Details

 

World-class knowledge pooled to inspire new business opportunities

Newcastle Science City is pooling the city’s world-class scientific research to help launch new North East products and services.

The ‘Business Opportunities’ programme is designed to provide entrepreneurs and innovative companies with in-depth knowledge of specific market opportunities.

These commercial opportunities, which have already been identified by experts in their field, address real-life challenges impacting on social and corporate issues in the areas of ageing & health and sustainability.

During a series of briefing sessions, the Newcastle Science City business support team will use ‘opportunity canvases’ to paint a picture of each commercial opportunity to the business community. This unique insight provides a ready-made needs analysis to help accelerate the process of bringing a product to market.

Businesses inspired to develop ideas sparked by the sessions will then be offered support to take them forward. Companies with existing ideas, meanwhile, can test them against the specific market knowledge that has been collated.

 Opportunity 1: Smarter Citizens. How can local people better understand how they can help tackle shared global energy and environmental concerns?
