The Global Business Innovation Programme(GBIP) enables ambitious innovators to find partners, collaborate and expand in new markets.
The three stage GBIP programme firstly prepares the business for operating in a specific market, then takes the business to the country to meet key partners and contacts from government, academia and commerce. Finally it provides post-visit specialist support to help leverage the introductions made and grow the relationships formed during the visit.
‘Robotics-as-a-service’ innovator HydroSurv is planning a Canadian subsidiary launch after participating in a Global Business Innovation Programme (GBIP) and revamping its IP strategy, supported by Innovate UK EDGE.
Devon-based HydroSurv has developed a range of revolutionary Uncrewed Surface Vehicles (USVs) to measure the effects of climate change in coastal areas and gather critical data for the ocean industries.
