Case studies

We are developing a library of case studies which highlight promising R&D projects – Innovation ideas - or completed projects where businesses are looking to commercialise their research – Innovation results.

As more of our projects come to fruition we aim to spotlight great examples where the businesses involved – large or small – are progressing their ideas closer to market.

This section also includes directories of feasibility projects produced as part of our Collaboration Nation work to build communities of businesses working together.
