In our International Institute for Product and Service Innovation (IIPSI) the focus is on future digital and connected technology that enables the development of leading innovative products and services. IIPSI is the most recent addition to WMG's impressive array of facilities. Opened in 2012, it gives West Midlands SMEs access to world-leading technology to enable development of leading, innovative products and services. The aim of the facility builds on WMG's established principle of bridging the gap between universities and business but the focus in IIPSI is on the developments associated with the future digital and connected economy. WMG teams in IIPSI are working at the forefront of research and knowledge transfer within business, innovation and technology.
