Innovation Now: opportunities for business & universities to work together

Improving the dynamic between Universities and SMEs.

Join Yorkshire Universities (YU), the regional partnership of twelve higher educational institutions, to learn more about how working with universities can benefit your business.

This headline event, as part of the inaugural West Yorkshire Innovation Festival, brings together expertise and opportunities from the universities and specialist higher education institutes (HEIs) in West Yorkshire to showcase and explore how strengthened relationships and interaction between universities and business can bolster innovation and benefit SMEs, across all sectors, in the Leeds City Region.

Opening with a plenary and panel discussion exploring business resilience and opportunities in the face of the pandemic, universities in West Yorkshire will present a range of insights and share an overview of available business support initiatives and programmes.

You’ll then have the opportunity to breakout into one of four interactive workshop sessions to explore opportunities for collaboration with universities on initiatives across healthcare, inclusive creative industries, textiles and low carbon heating and cooling.
