The Big Innovation Centre brings together a microcosm of the UK innovation and investment ecosystem, including some of the world’s leading companies, key institutions from across the policy landscape, and the best from UK universities.
The Big Innovation Centre’s partners all commit to opening their doors: sharing their expertise, ideas and resources, through designated ‘innovation activists’ appointed in each of the companies, university groups, and public institutions that we collaborate with. Some of our partners also choose to have their ‘innovation activist’ work with us as at the Big Innovation Centre in London as visiting fellows. Knowledge transfer between partners and interactive learning are key to the way we work as an open innovation hub.
Through building an open innovation hub with its focus on co-creation, we will help our partners grow their absorptive capability, spot opportunities for joint innovation, share risk and stimulate demand.
