Members and partners of the TWI Innovation Network (TWIIN) will be invited to join TWI’s Technology Innovation Management (TIM) team for a new series of online events about the upcoming Horizon Europe calls, as well as a weekly webinar on innovation trends in four key sectors.
The Innovation Trends Webinars are focusing on medical technology; net zero; construction; and digitalisation and connectivity. TWI has identified these as key, cross cutting topics driven by politics in both the UK and the European Union (EU). Innovation is critically required in these areas to meet ambitious political and social targets and will be integral to sustainable industrial growth. Following a successful pilot webinar, a series is now being planned for TWI’s Innovation Network comprising 20 webinars; five on each selected topic, over the course of 2021. These will be hosted by TIM’s Innovation Project Leaders: Victoria Adesanya, Robert Cooper, Sally Shi and Luke Turner.
In parallel to these will run a series of webinar briefings, also specifically for TWIIN, on upcoming Horizon Europe opportunities. These will include an introduction to the different topic areas and provide a forum for gathering ideas from the network, facilitating discussion and forming collaborative partnerships for proposals, all with the aim of bringing together TWI’s expertise, knowledge from Innovation Centres, insights from TWIIN’s partners and Members, and TWI Member companies industrial and engineering experience.
Dates and times for the webinars will be communicated in the near future. Meanwhile, if you would like to collaborate with the Technology Innovation Management team on future public funding bids, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, if you are not on the TWIIN mailing list but would like to hear about TWIIN events and news, then please send us an email to email@example.com and we will make sure you are included in future communications.
