Innovation networks are a way to engage with multiple external stakeholders, nurture partnerships and form an interdisciplinary ecosystem.
They usually focus on a particular technological market segment or problem-oriented topic and can involve a broad range of knowledge exchange activities.
Innovation networks can help you build communities of practice to:
- share and discuss common industry and technological challenges and opportunities, focusing on ‘market pull’ factors
- foster and develop collaboration between industry and UCL
- develop readiness and confidence to build joint research-based projects and solutions
- provide a forum for knowledge exchange on problem-oriented topics, innovative solutions and thought leadership in a pre-competitive or collaborative environment
