We understand that the concept of innovation can feel like an overwhelming prospect for some businesses, however, PAPI will be running an Innovation Support programme to tell you what innovation is and how you can employ innovate strategies to help boost your business. The programme is aimed at small to medium sized businesses in York, North Yorkshire and East Riding and will be delivered by University of York.

The programme is focused on high-quality, practically-focused product and process innovation support and expertise and will cover seven pivotal topics to help you make the best of your business:

  • Types of innovation
  • Strategies for growth
  • The innovation process
  • Dynamics of change
  • Process efficiency and effectiveness
  • Innovation tools and techniques
  • Risk, reward and financial planning

Those who attend this event will benefit from:

  • One-to-one contact to allow for the identification of your business innovation needs and to help you get the most from the programme
  • Specialist seminars delivered by expert practitioners
  • Practical, real-world expertise and tools that can be applied directly to your business
  • Development of an Innovation Plan tailored to your business
  • Networking of regional small businesses and professional experts
  • A gateway to further innovation funding for your business
  • Expert workshop design, facilitation and diagnostics 

Each of the workshops will take place over two (non-consecutive) days and venues: Tuesday 16th October in Northallerton and Tuesday 13th November in York or Tuesday 23rd October in Beverly and Tuesday 13th November in York.
