Why visit a Pop-Up Innovation Centre?

Our Pop-Up Innovation Centres take the services and support, offered by the Cornwall Innovation Centres, out to the wider business community.

They’re designed to help innovative businesses in those harder to reach areas of Cornwall (and the Isles of Scilly), who are geographically located outside easy driving distance of the Cornwall Innovation Centres.

The Pop-Up Innovation Centre offers a fully-funded service for all small-to-medium enterprises (SME’s) located within Cornwall.  We encourage local businesses to get in touch, or pop in, and speak to us about how we can support you.

What’s on offer?

Research & Innovation Expertise

At ATI, we are the innovation experts and our advisors are accredited by the world-renowned Institute of Innovation and Knowledge Exchange (IKE).

 

“My job is to help forward-thinking business people view their business from a different perspective. As a Business Innovation Advisor, I encourage business leaders to visualise new and innovative opportunities which maximise productivity and gain competitive advantage”

Duncan McAusland, ATI Business Innovation Advisor

Every Pop-Up Innovation Centre has a permanent Business Innovation Advisor on hand to offer help, guidance and innovation support. Whatever challenges your business is facing, we can help you find an innovative solution.

When working with ATI, businesses also benefit from the University of Plymouth’s world leading research and development expertise, accessing the support and resources for guidance in areas such as intellectual property, procurement and funding.

Hot Desks, Meeting Rooms & Events Space

For SME’s and growing businesses, additional office facilities to hot desk and host client meetings is a useful resource. With complimentary tea/coffee, free Wi-Fi and printing facilities, our pop-ups can make all the difference.

“The Pop-up’s are very useful. Meeting there is a great excuse for networking. Especially for people like me, who usually work from home, it’s good to get out of the house to increase productivity and bounce ideas around with other innovators”

Sam Baynham, Director of Dynamic Edge Innovation

Where we can, the Pop-up Innovation Centres also offer free events space. Of course, as we move around Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, every Pop-Up Innovation Centre location is different and space is provided on a first-come, first-served basis.  Speak to our Pop-Up Innovation Centre Coordinator, Adrienne Silcock Jones, on adrienne.silcockjones@plymouth.ac.uk and find out about our current availability.

Networking Opportunities

Socialising in the right circles is key to making valuable business connections. ATI works with a number of partner organisations, including:

 

We often hold ATI workshops and collaborative events at the Pop-up Innovation Centre for those  business leaders that are interested in meeting other likeminded and forward thinking professionals. Take a look at our events page to see what’s on.

Locations & Timings

The Pop-Up Innovation centres are scheduled for 9 key towns; locations include: Bude, Liskeard, Bodmin, Launceston, Looe, Newquay, St Austell, Penzance and St Marys.

Although the physical location of the Pop-Up Innovation Centre is short-term, typically limited to 1-3 months, the support and innovation expertise available through ATI is ongoing and secured into March 2020, thanks to the support of the European Regional Development Fund.
