If you have a small team concerned with innovation then it might be helpful to bring them along since the workshop will give a kick-start to the process of developing your strategic innovation management capability.

The workshop applies to not-for-profit ventures as long as there is a trading arm.

EDRF eligibility rules apply. Spaces will be prioritised for West Sussex based businesses.
