Welcome to the home of the West Yorkshire Innovation Festival
15-19th March 2021
Here to help you innovate.
The West Yorkshire Innovation Festival is raising the profile of innovation
in the Leeds City Region by bringing together innovative businesses, expertise, resources, and support available to shout about what’s happening in our region.
Created by the West Yorkshire Innovation Network and coordinated by the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP), the aim is to help SMEs in our region to innovate, to discover the support available and to build connections, so they can improve efficiencies, increase productivity and build resilient businesses.
In these unprecedented times, now more than ever, we want to encourage ideas and collaboration to create new opportunities, positive change and foster a culture of innovation for future prosperity, business growth and economic recovery.
It will be a week of virtual events from workshops to talks, masterclasses and knowledge sharing to interviews with innovative businesses.
Who's it for?
Open to businesses, individuals, creatives, academics, those with a spark of an idea, entrepreneurs, SMEs, start-ups and anyone who has an interest in how things can be done differently, do things better and make positive changes through innovation.
The Events page includes all upcoming events and is updated regularly with more information and registration details. Keep checking back for updates.
Events spanned from showcasing businesses who are adapting and pride themselves on thinking differently, to academic research around embedding change and productivity, how businesses can work with universities, profiling the innovators of tomorrow, to the development of Space Hub Yorkshire and becoming a central point in the UK for the future of space.
