The Big Innovation Centre is a unique network of experts across the areas of:

  • - Business models and strategy - how disruptive innovation challenges can be turned into opportunities
  • - Enterprising state – how the state can enable and co-create global innovation hubs
  • - Entrepreneurial finance – how financial ecosystems can scale innovating and fast-growing SMEs
  • - Intellectual property – how IP, Big Data, intangible assets and the digital sharing revolution can best unleash entrepreneurship, innovation and growth
  • - Markets and networks – how markets and networks are formed and become embedded in the way open innovation labs operate
  • - Universities and skills – how businesses get the most from the science base and become entrepreneurial co-creators

Our work is intellectually and practically grounded, and is underpinned by evidence-based research into the most pressing issues facing global economies today.
