17th January, 26th February and 26th March 2019: Three-Day Innovation Masterclass for marine businesses in Cornwall

17th January 2019

 This Masterclass is the first of its kind to be offered in the South West.

It is designed to equip marine technology businesses with all they need to know to put research and innovation at the heart of their business. The usual cost of this training would be £5,000 per person, but Marine-i has secured a limited number of places free of charge, on a ‘first come’ basis.

It is aimed at marine technology businesses as well as businesses in other sectors, such as software or advanced manufacturing, that would like to launch marine tech products or services.

The Masterclass will be delivered by three international experts in innovation management from the University of Exeter, all with extensive research, consulting and business experience. It will be supported by “Propel”, delivered by Cornwall Marine Network, which provides bespoke business support for the marine industry.

Delegates will discover how to identify new research ideas for their business and select ones that will work both for their current customers and new customers.  By the end of the Masterclass, they will also be able to establish their own business innovation process to help drive future growth.

Applicants will be invited to take part in the University’s Innovation Fitness Assessment and the Masterclass will culminate in a project proposal that, if successful, can also win 100% grant support of £2,000 to help accelerate the innovation.
