Innovation in a Time of Crisis

How can innovation help address the major challenges (and seize new opportunities) being presented by COVID-19? What funding programmes can businesses tap into? How can University academics apply their research to help companies to become more resilient, to evolve and to innovate?

These are the questions that this month’s ‘Innovation Friday’ will seek to address.
