Working alongside regional offices, universities and different organisations, Innovate UK and KTN host events with presentations, success stories, panels and workshops to help innovate and maximise your success.
The Innovate Local Programme is a suite of regional engagement events that promote Innovate UK & UKRI objectives.
The Programme is now in its 5th year, and KTN has been a trusted delivery partner throughout this time, organising and delivering the Innovate Local events.
We collaborate with local stakeholders to create tailored events that address regional innovation priorities with workshops to help businesses with the innovation process and access grants and support.
Our objective is to reach out to local businesses and demonstrate the types and level of support available, and inspire them to look at innovation in their business through the presentation and panel sessions.
The next series of regional engagement events will run from October 2021 through to March 2022.
