This five-month programme starting in June provides businesses with access to a unique innovation programme called INSPIRE – built from world leading research, and informed and shaped by SMEs just like you.
You’ll work with a dedicated coach to discover how open innovation can be used as a cost-effective tool for business growth and resilience and you’ll acquire the know-how to bring new ideas and opportunities to your business.
The INSPIRE programme has been created by the University of Brighton and is delivered by university experts as part ofthe Brighton Research Information Technology Exchange (BRITE) project. The BRITE project is available to Plus X Brighton members and is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

The Inspire programme has been fantastic for us, we started initially with one innovation project. Once we met with our coach, we ended up splitting it and partnering with another member on the programme giving us a business partnership and a comprehensive innovation idea whichwe’re now marketing to customers.
The university's INSPIRE programme has helped enormously in our transition, pivoting from a web-based company, to a solutions focused company. We were able to apply the methodology learned in our workshops, and with the support of our INSPIRE Coach, create an open innovation action plan. It has made the previously intangible possible - a focused growth plan to help realise our ambitions.
