Global Alliance Innovation Exchange

Global Alliance Innovation Exchange is an Innovate UK KTN programme specially designed to help UK and international organisations search for game-changing solutions to innovation challenges. Through the programme, we support innovation transfer by matching industry or societal challenges to innovative companies from across a diverse range of sectors. Our success is built on our deep sector expertise, trusted independence and global network.

The power of cross-sector collaboration

Leveraging expertise across our diverse network, Global Alliance Innovation Exchange promotes innovation transfer, matching real industry challenges from large businesses or societal challenges from governments, to companies and innovators already working on potential solutions.

Our unique cross-sector approach taps into the power of collaboration providing technical solutions from other sectors. Our challenge owners are keen to evolve collaborative partnerships with UK and international companies and academics, fostering new and innovative approaches to sector and societal challenges.

Can you identify innovative solutions to significant and immediate global challenges? We’d love to hear from you!
