Does your company need to innovate and introduce new technologies in order to succeed?
Are you fully aware of all the ways you can protect your company and technology?
Are you trying to find partners to help develop new products and processes?
Are you looking to expand into international markets?
This seminar is your opportunity to hear about all the services that can help you to protect and exploit your technology and partner with companies and research organisations locally, nationally and internationally. Tap into wider technology resources and leverage the knowledge of others with whom you can collaborate.
You will hear the latest news on support to innovation, learn about the free Enterprise Europe Network service, how our Universities can help as well as how to engage with funded European programmes and more.
