Innovation coupled with research and development can move your business to the next level, helping you to keep ahead of the competition and sometimes become a pioneer within your field. There are ample opportunities in the Black Country to access expertise, support and finance to help move your business forward.
If you want to bring new products to market but need help with market research or guidance on protection over Intellectual property there is the Innovation Product Support Service (IPSS) part funded by European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), which brings together the expertise of four West Midlands Universities.
There are other programmes which can bring a bright graduate into your business for up to three years working on a programme which is key to the growth of your company. They could carry out high level research while tapping into the University of Wolverhampton’s knowledge, resources and facilities. The University has already collaborated with many businesses throughout the region, helping them to increase profits and their workforce.
