Our second Innovation Summit will showcase the motives for, and benefits of, translating your research through entrepreneurial commercialisation and the infrastructure available to support you. The programme will include topics covering the incentives for engaging in entrepreneurship and how to overcome the challenges that an entrepreneur may face.

This is an excellent opportunity to network with members of the local entrepreneurial ecosystem, with a marketplace exhibit and 1-on-1 advice clinics allowing you to engage personally with CRUK, our partners and local industry.
