St Austell has been announced as the latest location to welcome a Pop-up Innovation Centre following the success of ones hosted in Bodmin and Launceston. The new Pop-up Innovation Centre will open for business on Tuesday 10th April in Unit 15-16 at St Austell Business Park and will operate until the end of July 2018.
The Pop-up Innovation Centres are being delivered as part of the Acceleration Through Innovation programme. Led by the University of Plymouth, this is a £3 million three year ERDF project.
Working alongside businesses including the St Austell Print Company and Coodes, the modern and central location will offer businesses the opportunity to network, attend workshops, use hot desks and have access to 1:1 business support.
Businesses and partnership organisations in St Austell and the surrounding areas are invited to attend the launch breakfast taking place on the 10th from 8.30am with a complimentary breakfast followed by a short presentation. Following the launch, meeting rooms, desks and event spaces are available to be booked in for use throughout the duration of the Pop-up Centre.
The project, in partnership with Cornwall Innovation, drives a culture of innovation, supporting businesses who are looking to adopt innovative processes or who have aspirations to bring a new product or service to the market.
ATI differentiates itself from the market by offering innovation expertise led by recognised specialists and certified innovation professionals. Working with small and medium size organisations, the programme provides employer and employee led innovation which inspires new ways of thinking whilst adding value to a business.
