Benefits of membership
Our highly successful Innovation Network is a melting pot of new ideas and how to put them into practice.
Big idea, small idea
Founded in 1996, the Innovation Network's aim is to develop a stronger network of links between industry and academic in order to enhance innovation - the successful commercial implementation of ideas.
Everyone benefits from the Innovation Network’s interchange and interaction. Ideas come in all shapes and sizes. Bring yours along – or just come with an appetite to innovate. Small, sustained improvements can lead to big increases in profitability. Big ideas can involve radical, highly original initiatives – or looking at an old problem in a fresh, new way.
