What is Innovate Local?

The Innovate Local Programme is a suite of regional engagement events that promote Innovate UK and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) objectives. We work with local stakeholders to create an event that addresses regional innovation priorities and workshops to help businesses learn more about the grants and innovation process.

Our objective is to reach out to local businesses and demonstrate the types and levels of support available. In addition, to inspire them to look at innovation in their business through the presentation and panel sessions.

The Programme is now in its 5th year and Innovate UK KTN has been a trusted delivery partner throughout this time, organising and delivering the Innovate Local events.
