Innovation Network provides a highlight for UKRI Chief Executive’s TWI visit
This week saw TWI host a welcome visit by the Chief Executive of UKRI, Professor Sir Mark Walport, who had a chance to see its Innovation Network, the innovation environment, collaborative Innovation Centres (including several university partnerships) and the exemplary projects that are underway.
The visit also provided an opportunity to interact with the Innovation Centres and PhD students working at TWI
This was a great occasion to showcase the extended new capabilities demonstrated by the growing network and the skill sets it enables through several postgraduate studies and research projects, complemented by its strong industrial membership base and supported by the Accelerated Innovation Programme.
In light of the transforming landscape for research and innovation funding in the UK and opportunities to help deliver the latest industrial strategy, the TWI Innovation Network will be announcing its annual meeting later this year with a view to demonstrating the strength of the long-term strategic collaborations between academia and TWI's industrial Members.
