TWI Innovation Network (TWIIN) will host its Annual Convention in a new virtual format this year – bringing together industry and academic professionals, entrepreneurs, innovators and forward-looking companies and organisations from around the world – for an informative, engaging and interactive day focused on engineering innovation and collaborative technology development.

Starting at 09.30am GMT on Wednesday 9 December 2020, the Convention will include:

  • Presentations from key players in the innovation landscape explaining routes and assistance to enable successful technology projects
  • Innovation and SME pitches showcasing latest technologies
  • 1-2-1 Innovation Clinics – back by popular demand
  • Networking sessions at which delegates can connect and catch up with fellow attendees, TWI Industrial Members, partners and staff as well as the event’s speakers.

Innovation clinics offer a unique opportunity to find out how TWI’s Technology Innovation Management team can help businesses join leading research and development (R&D) projects, and access public funding.  Clinics can be booked via the Convention registration link.  Appointments are on a first-come-first-served basis.

Tat-Hean Gan, TWI Director of Innovation and Skills said “The 2020 Annual TWIIN Convention is ideal for companies and organisations who are interested in, or currently engaged in, engineering R&D.”

“With the wide-sweeping changes that have affected the world this year, it is vital to keep anticipating and meeting market demand to ensure a continuing business.  By spending just a few hours at the TWI Innovation Network Convention, delegates will gain valuable insights into the conception and exploitation of new technologies as well the opportunity to make new contacts both in the Network and amongst fellow delegates”, he explained.

The TWIIN Annual Convention 2020, 09.30 – 15.00 (GMT) is free to attend – register online to secure your place here
