Innovate UK – Creative and Digital Industries Meet-up
In partnership with Innovate UK, the University is hosting a free half-day event focusing on the funding and support on offer to researchers and digital companies keen to nurture technology-enabled innovation to accelerate sustainable economic growth.
The free event – on Thursday 15 January – will provide networking opportunities with companies that have already benefitted from the support on offer, as well as the chance to hear from the Innovate UK Digital Team, Loughborough academics, and representatives from regional companies.
It will also provide academics with the chance to find out more about innovation funding such as Horizon 2020, and the support available for partnership work with regional digital companies including Knowledge Transfer Partnerships.
Amongst the guest speakers are Matt Rogan (MD of sports marketing agency Two Circles), Andy Cooper (PR and Project Manager at scouting and recruitment management solutions company Scout 7), and Matt Sansam (Innovate UK).
Matt Sansam (Programme Manager and Lead Technologist at Innovate UK) says: "This event – in partnership with the Sports Technology Institute at Loughborough – is part of a series of UK-wide meetings.
“Innovate UK and the Digital Economy Team are meeting with innovative digital companies to find out more about the technologies they are developing, and to signpost them towards the various Innovate UK competitions, networking events and supporting services."
