There are now two days remaining to register for the upcoming Worcestershire Innovation (WINN) Wednesday event and to help shape innovation in the County.
The interactive session, which takes place on 29 June from 5pm – 8:30pm at University of Worcester Arena is aptly called ‘8 minutes 20 seconds to launch’.
This reflects the time it takes for the sun’s light to reach the earth as attendee’s will be asked to shine a light on current activity, innovative networks and what is needed to bring these together to further promote innovation in the County.
The new WINN programme is designed to bring together networks of innovation communities and like-minded individuals to form successful collaborations, provide a vibrant and creative environment to inspire ideas and provide opportunities and assistance to launch new concepts. The session will provide details of proposed activity and attendees will have the opportunity to feedback and shape future plans.
WINN Wednesdays are part of the Worcestershire Innovation Programme formed by Worcestershire County Council and the Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, QinetiQ, University of Worcester, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce, Birmingham Science City, Central Technology Belt, Malvern Hills Science Park and Malvern Instruments.
Gary Woodman, Chief Executive of Worcestershire Local Enterprise Partnership, added: “The upcoming WINN Wednesday event will provide local businesses with a fantastic opportunity to help shape innovation in the County. These free-to-attend events help to bring together like-minded individuals with industry experts and really help companies to increase their productivity. I would urge Worcestershire’s innovative businesses to secure their place at the earliest opportunity.”
Cllr Dr Ken Pollock, Cabinet Member with Responsibility for Economy, Skills and Infrastructure at Worcestershire County Council, said: “Worcestershire Innovation Wednesdays have helped many local businesses to adopt innovative practices which is reflected in the popularity of these events. I would strongly encourage Worcestershire businesses to continue to involve themselves in these innovation showcases and to register at the earliest opportunity.”
Places are limited, however tickets are free of charge and businesses are encouraged to register at the earliest opportunity via the new Worcestershire Innovation website.
