Event Details


To ensure that innovation delivers meaningful value to the client (user or customer), technological solutions need to be considered in the context of environment (ecosystem), economy and marketplace. This CoL event will introduce community members to techniques that quantify ‘value’, opportunity and risk in business and operational terms alongside a method to manage the virtuous circle that connects innovators with users and suppliers with investors.


To share the perspectives of stakeholders, influencers, innovators, suppliers and the demands driven by each. The proposed methodology enables an innovation ecosystem to recognise value in a number of different forms which may be attuned to the business priorities of all participants.

The attendees will learn:

What is the economic landscape for businesses looking like - considering post-Brexit challenge and opportunity

What the innovation challenges are for the UK defence and security ecosystem and how they are being met

How, through an SME case study, an innovative capability may be applied to the Defence and Security market and how stakeholder benefits may be realised

How BAR Associates are supporting innovators and the ecosystem and how the approach to doing business in the sector can enhance productivity
