At iNet Innovation Lab, our Innovation Labs are special, one off events centred around a single issue and designed to inspire collaborative activities that the iNets can actively support. We know that magic happens when we bring people together and set them a challenge, and we are committed to supporting innovation in the region in this way.
Here at iNet Innovation Lab we invite South West businesses, entrepreneurs and university experts to pool their knowledge, skills, ideas and technologies so they can exploit the real gaps in their sector markets. At Innovation Labs people meet to listen to the challenges from highly respected speakers and then come together in expertly facilitated workshops to discuss practical ways to grab those opportunities.
Everyone leaves with new and valuable contacts, a fresh perspective and in the very best of cases a joint proposal for new or innovative applications for their ideas and capabilities. All eligible project proposals are invited to apply for financial support and our excellent free business services.
What do the iNets get out of Innovation Labs? Rick Chapman, Director Microelectronics iNet.
“That’s easy! We’re set up to support innovation in the region — the Innovation Lab we ran around Integrated Transport, prompted four brand new collaborative, innovative projects that we funded. That represents £30,000 of iNet funding generated from a single event, along with excellent contacts and expansion of the network. It’s worth mentioning too, our contribution to the deepening understanding of the sector challenges that our delegates now have as a result of attending.”
