Business Innovation and Growth Group

The purpose of the Business Innovation and Growth Group is to support members in business (small, medium and large-sized businesses) and members that are entrepreneurs taking ideas to market.

By joining this group, members will benefit from:

  • Networking and profiling
  • B2B business development opportunities
  • Knowledge exchange activities to support industry-academia collaborations
  • Peer learning and mentoring
  • Access to business support and finance
  • Access to affordable workspace.

To support knowledge exchange between academia and business, the group will collaborate with other groups, and in particular subject focused groups.

A key objective of the group will help to coordinate access to the existing landscape of support, and will achieve this working with Partners. Partners are likely to include organisations such as the physics-based Catapults, KTN, IPO, Innovate UK, Innovation Centres and Science Parks as well as private sector finance and business support providers.
