NORTH East businesses interested in opportunities to innovate are being invited to Northumbria University’s first Innovation Network meeting.
The Innovation Network – a series of regular informal networking events – is designed to highlight the expertise offered by Northumbria academics and business experts to regional, national and international businesses.
Graham Hopson, business development manager in Northumbria’s Research and Business Services, said: “Northumbria is well-known as being a university that works closely with industry to help develop innovative products and services for global markets.
“Using the physical and virtual platform of the Innovation Network, we would like to combine our local knowledge and global reach to work even more closely with businesses and organisations who have previously worked with us, and those who may wish to work with us in the future.”
The first session takes place at Mea House Auditorium, Ellison Place, on Wednesday, January 23 from 3.30pm to 6pm.
The first Innovation Network event is open to all types of businesses and will be a general introduction and showcase of what Northumbria University academics and business experts can do to help businesses in the region. Other sessions in the series will focus on particular business areas, including the energy, health, food and creative sectors.
