Curated by Acceleration Through Innovation (ATI) and featuring a unique line-up of innovators, business leaders, researchers and academics, we will explore how forward-thinking SME’s can incorporate innovation to not only secure their place in the future, but thrive in a fast moving and competitive landscape.
This exclusive one day event offers attendees an insight into the latest research and innovation trends, whilst also imparting practical knowledge and expertise which will inspire attendees to embrace change as an opportunity, as opposed to a threat to business.
In addition to our guest speakers, the conference also provides businesses with the opportunity to get involved in high level discussions, attend innovation workshops and experience demonstrations of emerging tech, such as robotics and immersive theatre.
Thanks to ATI, a project led by the University of Plymouth and funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), tickets to Innovation for Business are free of charge to all eligible businesses based in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, with priority being given to Cornwall Innovation Club Members in the first instance. Please be aware that tickets are limited for both businesses and partners, so book early to avoid disappointment.
