Get ready for Leicester Innovation Week 2020

Innovation Week kicks off on 24th February 2020 and there are a wide range of inspiring events taking place across Leicester and Leicestershire.

Now in its third year Leicester Innovation Week 2020 offers a great opportunity for businesses, universities and business support organisations to work together to showcase Leicester and Leicestershire as a hub of innovation. During the week there will be a range of free innovation events taking place to inspire and catalyse the power and enthusiasm of local partners working together to promote a shared agenda focusing on innovation.

Innovation is key to business growth and profitability, but businesses can find it difficult to understand the support available and how to access it.  Innovation Week aims to address this, elevating the profile of the LLEP area and showcasing the exciting innovations that are taking place here.

Leicester Innovation Week 2020 will present businesses and innovators the opportunity attend daily events, meet with university experts, discover funding and innovation support and learn from the innovation journeys of some of Leicestershire’s most exciting top companies.
