Press Release: Marine-i launches Innovation Masterclass for marine businesses starting 13th March 2019

Marine-i is staging a unique three-day Masterclass in Innovation for marine technology businesses based in Cornwall. It is aimed at marine businesses and at those in other sectors, such as software or advanced manufacturing, that would like to launch new marine tech products or services.

 

Delegates will discover how to identify new research ideas for their business and select the 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.

 

Spread over three full-day sessions, the Masterclass is one of the first of its kind to be offered in the South West. 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.

 

Professor Lars Johanning, who heads up the Marine-i team, says: “This is a unique opportunity to learn from experts how you can accelerate your business growth through innovation. Innovation can become the bedrock of your business, creating long term competitive advantage.”

 

The Masterclass will be delivered by international experts in innovation management from the University of Exeter, all with extensive research, consulting and business experience.

 

Applicants will also 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 win 100% grant support of £2,000 to help accelerate the innovation.

 

The Innovation Masterclass will be held on 13th March, 29th April and 7th June 2019 at Bedruthan Hotel and Spa, Mawgan Porth, Cornwall.
