Innovation Knowledge Exchange: Practically delivering innovation
Tuesday, 21 January 2014
15:00 - 17:00
The Work Foundation, 21 Palmer Street, London, SW1H 0AD
University are looking to develop a new PhD programme which, bridging the academic and
industry gap, will look at applied routes for innovation within firms and
collaborative groups of firms, as well as building innovation skillsets.
University and The Work Foundation are hosting a cross sector, peer-to-peer
workshop for its partners on Tuesday 21st January 2014 (15.00 – 17.00) to
discuss this programme in more depth. This is an exciting opportunity to play a
major and on going role, alongside LU and TWF, around the design and
development of this new Higher Education programme – which we hope will also
benefit partners in the delivery of innovation.
Partners will have the opportunity to nominate an example of an innovation
challenge, be it specific to your organisation, sector or society – this could
be around business models, product design/development or internal cultural
change for example.
The workshop will be run by Professor Christopher May, Faculty Associate Dean
for Enterprise at Lancaster University who is the development-lead for this
project/programme. Professor May outlines his thoughts on innovation and the
steps taken so far to develop the programme, in a series of blogs below:
Innovation as a mind-set – six key components
Innovation: innate talent or a skill that can be taught?
Nick Fragel, Director of Alumni & Development at Lancaster University will
be hosting a drinks/food reception afterward the workshop and we encourage you
to stay on and speak with him and Professor May, as well colleagues from TWF,
about the programme.
This workshop is for Partners of The Work Foundation and by invitation only.
If you have any questions about this event then please get in touch with Neil Child-Dyer (firstname.lastname@example.org or 0207 976 3501).
