The TWI Innovation Network (TWIIN) is launching a new subscription programme to provide mutual collaboration to innovation-focused companies. These collaborations are designed to enable engineering advances in specialist areas to meet commercial needs in a range of industry sectors.
TWIIN has already developed an enviable track record in nurturing and coordinating collaborative partnerships to develop novel ideas and projects from concept and prototyping to demonstration, qualification and system upscaling.
The aim of the subscription programme is to allow research and technology organisations (RTOs) and companies the opportunity to maximise capabilities and advance new concepts through the Technology Readiness Levels and into the marketplace. TWIIN support will be tailored and include one-to-one innovation management consultations, bespoke workshops and partnership opportunities.
Speaking on the new initiative, Tat-Hean Gan, TWI’s Director of Innovation and Skills explained, “The new TWI Innovation Network Subscription Programme will support companies and organisations of all sizes to leverage technology acceleration to maximise their business’s potential, drawing on TWI’s 70+ years’ experience of working collaboratively across industry to identify and co-develop new technologies and applications.”
