Understanding the Technology Inspired Innovation Collaborative R&D Competition for the Biosciences Area

In 2011 the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) organised workshops to enable delegates to get a better understanding of the scope of the new Technology Strategy Board (now known as Innovate UK) collaborative R&D funding call for Technology-Inspired Innovation for the Biosciences technology area.

  • Leeds on 28th October 2011
  • Stirling on 4th November 2011

These workshops gave an overview of the competition scope - focusing on the Biosciences technology area, the process and rules for collaborative R&D.
Delegates were also offered the opportunity to give a short presentation to pitch their technologies, core capabilities or project ideas to potential collaborative partners.
