The Knowledge Transfer Network are hosting a business support workshop on 19th February. Members of the MD Club organising team will be at this event.
Business innovation can be the implementation of new ideas, creating
dynamic products or improving existing services. Innovation can be the
catalyst for the growth and success of your business, helping you adapt
and grow in the UK and global marketplace.
However we understand that knowing what support is available to your business and how to access this can often be confusing to navigate, especially for smaller companies. Innovate UK has come together with the Sheffield City Region LEP to offer a free one day event for the South Yorkshire business community and organisations that support business innovation; to help delegates learn more about what support is out there.
The event will also explore and discuss the opportunities that adoption of digital technologies will present to businesses. The recent ‘Made Smarter’ review estimates that the positive impact of faster innovation and adoption of digital technology could be as much as £455 billion for UK manufacturing over the next decade, creating a conservative net gain of 175,000 jobs throughout the economy and enabling more efficient, and cleaner production systems.
So come along to hear about how these opportunities will support your business and to learn about what support is available both nationally and locally, and how to access it.
