Inventorium

Aims & Objectives

http://www.inventorium.org

Inventorium is designed to bring together people who would not normally meet – people who each have a part but not the whole of an innovation.  The key goal is to support new cultures of innovation by helping to develop and share novel ideas and solutions.

By bringing together stakeholders from relevant sectors, Inventorium will create novel mechanisms and channels for technology transfer, complementing ongoing activity and enhancing and contributing to sustainable business and entrepreneurial activities across Northwest Wales and Southeast Ireland, which will be delivered through a series of interlinked processes including:

  • Developing a multiplatform three-year programme of on/offline activities (website, seminars, workshops, festivals), which challenge existing concepts and approaches to innovation;
  • Developing and testing systematic methodologies for early stage knowledge interchange as part of the knowledge transfer process;
  • Supporting the early stage conceptualisation of products and services based on innovative technologies which in turn further builds capacity for research in those domains;
  • Providing channels of communication between potential and existing actors: SMEs, MNCs Corporate bodies, Public bodies, academic and research institutions and interested individuals in the generation of solutions;
  • Providing mechanisms and supports for subsequent translational research and early stage business incubation;
  • Creating open, online and publicly accessible resources, which are focused on sharing innovative ideas, practice and real-world economic solutions within the digital space;
  • Seeking opportunities to promote and contribute to the core activities of C.A.S.T, Wales and the NDRC, Ireland;
  • Creating sustainable approaches, which will allow for further digital and innovative growth across emerging sectors and markets in northwest, Wales and South East, Ireland.
