Successful collaboration between business and universities
Technology hubs gain enormous benefits from effective engagement between Universities and Companies; Stanford University in Silicon Valley, Cambridge University in Silicon Fen. Shoreditch has world-class research institutions on its doorstep – how can we enable the exchange of expertise, resources and ideas that will help drive Tech City, London and the UK to the next level in digital innovation?
Part of the success of the Tech City ecosystem is the ability to build relationships with other SMEs and entrepreneurs because of proximity. Stronger relations with investors, government and big business have taken shape as the talent and innovation in the cluster has been recognised. But, what about established institutions on your doorstop and beyond?
Collaboration between universities and SMEs has often flown under the radar. So, what works? How do successful collaborations between local businesses and universities happen? What new forms of partnership can we develop?
The final INNOVATE session, chaired by Kam Star of Playgen and Digital Shoreditch, will answer these questions.
