This workshop will enable attendees to build better partnerships that are able to win Innovate UK funding.
The workshop will explore design process theory, practical application of design theory and how to embed this within a partnership. Companies and academics will hear from thought leaders on design process, innovation funders and case studies of companies who have benefited from adopting design process into their innovation. Attendees will be given clear next steps in how they can adopt design process into their innovation/R&D plans and grant applications.
This workshop is aimed at companies across all technology sectors who want to innovate more productively and who want to build partnerships that yield more. The workshop will also appeal to academics who want to build partnerships with industry that will effectively translate their inventions to the market. This workshop will have broad applicability but will be orientated towards Innovate UK funding.
