Skylon Park in association with QinetiQ are holding an “Achieving innovation through collaboration” event that will explore real success stories where collaboration has delivered success and revenue to team members. We are offering 3 examples of how this approach works and how you can be involved.

1. VIVACE is an organisation formed from over 100 businesses across the UK delivering communications research to the Home Office. Headquartered in Central London VIVACE reaches into a broad community of UK industry comprising large corporates, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and academia delivering solutions at pace through the use of an Agile Methodology and web-based development environments. The concept will be presented by Anthony Alston a key member of the VIVACE leadership team, supported by Steve Borwell-Fox who runs a Malvern based SME which is actively working within the VIVACE community.

2. The National Spectrum Research Centre is a proposal currently being discussed with UK Government and Regional Government to provide a unique capability and coordination for spectrum research in the UK. The facility will be based in Mid Wales with extensive facilities, test ranges, subject matter experts and research funding open to all industries in UK. Our lives and future are heavily linked to Spectrum technology Autonomy, Robotics, Manufacturing, Health, Communications, Defence, Security, Cyber, Agriculture, Smart Cities, Smart Roads, Smart Regions, Communications, 5G etc. all fall into this centre’s areas of interest.
Dr Anil Shukla who has been the technical driving force will explain what this centre will offer, how it will operate and how you can be involved.

3. Government Research Frameworks are the way much of the Defence research is now contracted. QinetiQ has been managing these frameworks for many years and work with many organisations to deliver this capability to government. Helen Langbridge, Programme Manager for one of the largest frameworks, will describe the operations of such a framework and how you could get involved. Helen will also be supported by a current framework member who will offer a view on how they have benefited.
