“ The Match-up was brilliant. It allowed us to quickly explore innovation needs for a range of different organisations and resulted in a number of important ongoing collaborations for our open innovation platform. I would not miss it.”
Dr Ben McNeil, Thinkable.org
Collaboration is one of the key drivers of innovation, providing businesses who collaborate with a distinct advantage over the competition. Businesses collaborating with the research sector gain access to a skilled and industry-ready workforce; the latest knowledge, technology and information; and are more likely to develop new ideas, products and services to take to market.
After the success of our first event in 2016, we will be holding another Business-Research Match-up on Wednesday 24 May 2017 as part of the Collaborate | Innovate | 2017 conference.
Researchers – meet the businesses that want your ideas
Businesses – find out what research and development is out there and explore new possibilities
Investors – meet researchers and entrepreneurs looking to do the amazing
The day will include the opportunity to book 20-minute meeting time slots with any business, researcher or any conference attendee, available from 9:00am to 5:00pm. Don’t miss the chance to pre-book that important meeting during the conference.
“ The match-up event provided an excellent forum for engaging with the research sector. The format of short, sharp, focused meetings was a great way to communicate the needs of our business and explore potential future collaborations. I would highly recommend attending such future events to any businesses looking for collaborations to solve specific needs or just wanting to develop a network with the research sector.”
