innovation expedition
Lets Breakthrough
and go Beyond!
We have taken inspiration from explorers, adventurers and key thought leaders to develop this unique project which sees innovation as a journey every business must go on.

Together with partners across the region, we will create unique environments that stimulate innovation, by leading diverse and cross-cutting teams on expeditions to new cross-cluster market opportunities.
