Here at the BIC, we understand how important it is for businesses to innovate and that is why we are committed to helping forward thinking organisations explore their own innovative ambitions.
To aid this process and contribute to regional growth we have developed the North East SME Innovation Programme.
Utilising £724,000 of ERDF investment and part financed by the European Union’s ERDF Competitiveness Programme 2007 – 2013, the Innovation Programme is helping to promote a step change in the region by encouraging North East businesses to explore their innovative potential.
