Science, engineering and digital businesses invited to Lincoln debate

Businesses in Lincolnshire are being invited to a special science, technology, engineering and digital business event at the Boole Technology Centre.

Lincolnshire Technology Future at the centre in Lincoln will take place on Wednesday, October 4 from 10am.

The half day event will see firms debate the increasing role of innovation in the Lincolnshire economy, network with their peers and influence future policies to support the innovation community.

Selected speakers from businesses who have built their success on the back of innovation will present on their approach to new products and processes and the emerging technical challenges within their fields.

Currently confirmed are:

  • Neil Everatt, CEO, Selenity, formerly Software Europe
  • Simon Fry, Chairman, Micronclean
  • Vidyanath Gururajan, Innovations Director, Branston Potatoes

Presentations will be followed by a panel discussion, open to the floor and chaired by James Pinchbeck of Streets Accountants and member of the Greater Lincolnshire LEP Employment and Skills Board.

This will focus on what local and national government along with other relevant authorities like the GLLEP need to do to enhance innovation capacity and therefore the competitiveness of the county over the coming decades.

The event is the first in a series planned by Lincoln Science and Innovation Park.
