We have introduced hundreds of companies to our expertise, knowledge and facilities through our Innovation Network.
We hold a series of free events throughout the year, covering topics on innovation, enterprise and entrepreneurship. These events provide a great opportunity to connect with our expertise and with local business people, and to hear inspirational, thought-provoking speakers.
We have circa 1,800 members consisting of business people from a wide range of industries, companies and organisations as well as academics. Around 70% of our members are local small and medium-sized enterprises. The remainder are from business support organisations and academia.
Our events are usually held in the early evening for around 80 people, followed by a light buffet supper and networking.

Some members come to every event; some come to just one a year. Some come primarily to network; others to hear specific speakers or topics only.
Membership, as well as attendance at our events, is completely free.
