This is a must attend event for any business in the North East committed to innovation.
You may have heard the terms ‘Innovation Hubs’, ‘Smart Specialisation’, ‘Innovation Ecosystem’, and so on. This will be a great opportunity for you to find out how these different aspects come together to help grow the region into an innovation hotspot in Europe. Alan Welby, the North East Local Enterprise Partnership’s new Innovation Director, will be sharing his thoughts and plans for the foreseeable future in light of the changes ahead.
Alan joins the NELEP from Liverpool John Moores University, where he was Director of Research, Innovation and Partnerships and was responsible for the delivery and management of a £25.7m annual programme of community, commercial and collaborative activity.
