University of Salford to host ‘Innovation Labs’ to boost business potential

The University of Salford is hosting a three-day innovation design sprint, to allow business leaders to explore and progress their pioneering projects.

Run by Salford Business School’s Centre for Sustainable Innovation (CSI), there will be several cohorts to join, with the first sessions taking place on February 26, 27 and 28 .

The CSI is designed to allow businesses access to academic expertise to help shape their projects.

The programme will be delivered in partnership with The Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub, and hosted on the University’s Fredrick Road campus.

Over three days, participants will get to understand the innovation process, and be equipped with tools to analyse the markets and identify opportunities.

By the final day, all participants will be connected with the expertise to help apply their innovation idea, as well as identify potential routes for additional funding.

Dr Ann Mulhaney, associate professor at Salford Business School, said: “This is a great opportunity for businesses in the Greater Manchester region to explore ideas, aided by our expert team of consultants and commercialisation specialists.

“At the CSI, we focus on three core areas of innovation: the potential around the sustainability agenda and net zero, digital transformation projects and change management. The event is a chance to collaborate with other businesses and connect with experts to help you explore and implement innovative project ideas.”

Yvonne Grady, head of innovation at the Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub, said: “We recognise how important it is for businesses to have the space and time to properly think through their innovation ideas. It’s also a chance for participants to connect with experts, and explore the University’s world-leading facilities.”
