IAWM Annual Report 2019

Innovation Alliance for the West Midlands (IAWM) has recently conducted its second consultation survey since its transformation from Birmingham Science City (BSC) in 2017.

We’re thrilled with the positive feedback from our stakeholders who continue to be satisfied with our hard work and diligent efforts to build a thriving innovation ecosystem in the West Midlands, and stimulate and catalyse a pipeline of innovation activity.

In 2019, IAWM ran or co-ran a total of 24 events – including 14 Working Group meetings, 4 Innovation Policy and Practice Breakfasts, 5 additional thematic workshops (3 of which were construction focused) and Venturefest, which we are thrilled continue to welcome attendees from various sectors and backgrounds. Alongside this, we launched the Innovation Support Forum, supported various innovative projects in the West Midlands, and worked hard towards the upcoming West Midlands Innovation Programme. 

Our report compiles the results and feedback from our recent survey, which illustrates the impact we are striving to make in the West Midlands, as well as our plans for the future.

Thank you to all who have attended, contributed, and been part of the Alliance in 2019. Here’s to an even better 2020!
