Innovation means the successful implementation and commercialisation of novel ideas and is crucial to ensuring that businesses maintain a competitive advantage.

New technology, new ways of living and working, new products and services, laws, regulations and policies all put greater pressure on organisations to innovate.

Our partner, The North East BIC, is committed to ensuring that businesses in the region have access to expertise and funding to discover opportunities for innovation, to write compelling bids and undertake research and development to successfully exploit new ideas and deliver innovation through programmes such as the North East SME Innovation Programme and the Flexible Support Programme.
