How can commercial success be achieved in every region and nation through innovation partnerships?

Are you interested in building successful economic regions and nations and levelling up the UK? Join us to shape our Thriving Regions and Nations work by gaining and sharing insight on how clusters can help form innovation partnerships that make the best of the UK research, and drive high value growth. This event is in association with Tortoise Media.

This event will focus on how good collaboration through research and innovation can lead to commercial success and high value growth.

We’ll be seeking to gain insight to best practice and ideas by touching on:  

  • What does best practice look like for innovation across a cluster – how does the eco-system generate collective ideas and how balanced is collaboration and competition
  • How business can partner with HE/FE to innovate across clusters
  • How effective is diffusion and how can this be improved to build successful foundations for growth and commercial success
  • What policies have worked to date and how we can make the best from new policies

This event is invite-only and will be a maximum of 1.5 hours, including time for networking. Tortoise Media will be facilitating this session and there will be a write up of the discussion, as well as film and audio used to create to resources for the Clusters Playbook, which will be built up as we undertake the roadshows.

What is a Think In?

A ThinkIn is not a panel discussion but a forum for civilised disagreement, designed to reach a better informed opinion based on the experience and expertise of everyone in the room. Together, we’ll aim to answer questions like: What is a cluster? What role do they play in the levelling up agenda? And how can businesses and policy makers work together to make them a success?
