Bio Electrical Engineering Innovation Hub was established in May 2018 with funding from a BBSRC Innovation Accelerator Award to the University of Warwick. The Hub implements a structured approach to innovation, where a unique team of academics are brought together to form an innovator club. The members of this club will brainstorm for 3 months to develop short research proposals, few of which will then be selected for scientific implementation (over a 1/1.5 year duration), and application-oriented development (over another 1/1.5 year period).
The activities of the innovator club, including proposal development and implementation, will be supported by an advisory board that will include technical and managerial industrialists, funding body representatives, and investors. The club members will also undergo tailored entrepreneurial training, and work closely with Warwick Ventures for directing market research and analysis around their chosen projects.
We will showcase BEE Hub activities and projects as they develop. In particular, we will hold events open by invitation to individuals and institutions coming from different sectors of industry, funding landscape, academic research, investment, and regulatory and social spheres. If you would like to be part of our BEE Forum and receive invitations to these events please contact us.
