For any business striving to grow and compete on the global market, innovation will be the key differentiator in achieving that competitiveness. Innovations manifest in many ways;
All are vital for success.
Innovation is best achieved through collaborations and partnerships, be they with training providers, funding partners or university R&D collaborators.
All of these players and more will be on show in the ADS Innovation Zone - a vibrant networking hub at the Farnborough International Airshow - helping to connect innovation supply and demand to bring your big ideas to commercial reality. Universities will be showcasing their latest technological developments and high-innovation concepts; the Technology Strategy Board will be promoting a range of programmes that can help support innovative businesses; and the European Research Area will be enabling access to EU research funding.
