CONGRATULATIONS TO HAULTECH
Sally On The Run – Stroke Association
Sally and Caroline are taking part in the ‘Trentham Gardens 15K’ on the 07th April and the ‘Stafford Half Marathon’ on the 17th March to raise money for Stroke Association. We have chosen this charity as we lost my beautiful mum on the 12th November unexpectedly and it’s something very close to our hearts. We miss you mum and just hope we can make it to the finish line!!!
GREAT NEWS, INNOVATE UK INVESTING IN LOCAL CATAPULT CENTRES
Innovate UK are investing £215m for the UK’s Catapult Innovation and Research Centres. The BIC interacts regularly with these centres and if a Staffordshire business is looking to carry out research on new products our R&D Adviser Rachel can help to access the support they need.
Cakes Galore for Children In Need 2018
Sandra & Rachel from the Staffordshire BIC visited the tenants at the Sutherland Institute selling cakes for Children in Need. As usual, the tenants dug deep into their pockets and a total of £38 was raised towards the Children in Need. Many thanks to Spec Check, V Prep, Interlock Digital, Cats & Carbs, Find A Home, Longton Libary
OPEN ROUND OF GRANT FUNDING FROM INNOVATE UK
Just thought I’d let you know that there is currently an OPEN Round of Funding running from Innovate UK for innovative business focussed projects as opposed to pure research. Usually funding is available for specific sectors and industries but this is an OPEN round so worth considering. Applications can come from any area of technology, science or engineering including arts, design, media or creative industries and be applied to any part of the economy.
GREAT BRITISH INVENTIONS TO INSPIRE YOU
As an island, it is generally felt that Britain had a head start on Innovation. We designed and developed products out of need and led the Industrial Revolution. It wasn’t difficult therefore for BBC 2 to come up with 50 Great British Inventions for their Genius of Invention season.
