University of Southampton Science Park, 2 Venture Road, Chilworth, Southampton, SO16 7NP
Britain is home to a host of world class science based businesses, producing innovative products, creating jobs and driving economic growth. Supporting this expansion is the aim of the Technology Strategy Broad (TSB), which along with others make up the UK’s innovation landscape.
With the government changing the way it backs Britain’s innovation sector, it is now more than ever, vital that high-tech companies take advantage of the help and support on offer from the UK’s innovation landscape.
To make sense of the latest developments and discuss the help available to businesses, the Institute of Physics (IOP) business forum at Southampton Science Park will bring together a panel of experts with a wealth of knowledge and practical experience in government backed innovation.
