Innovation through Collaboration
The third in our series of Innovation Briefings will focus on how to collaborate more effectively in innovation projects.
With an emphasis on developing relationships between SMEs and centres of expertise from the research and development community, this one-hour webinar will examine the benefits of such collaborations from the perspective of all parties concerned.
We will also look at the ways you can improve your chances of success at the outset and avoid some of the potential pitfalls that can cause problems for new partnerships.
The webinar will include:
- a brief overview of several tools and schemes that are available to help with the collaboration process.
- Q&A session with our innovation advisor
