Industry Portal Activities - coming soon
The IMCRC Industry Portal offers an array of activities, events and tools to provide IMCRC participants with low-cost, high value information services on technical and non-technical requirements for industry transformation and orientation to transformation opportunities from within the IMCRC.
Industry transformation is complex and multifaceted. The critical element is availability and use of knowledge ranging over vast and varied areas. For SMEs particularly, information and knowledge are costly to acquire and deploy, whilst innovation is risky and potentially costly.
The IMCRC will reduce these costs and risks, which constitute barriers to innovation and transformation, by increasing the availability of valuable and relevant knowledge to firms, building their competitiveness.
IMCRC Industry Portal activities cluster into three broad groupings:
1. Induction & Diagnostics - in development
The Induction & Diagnostics process is being designed to provide prospective IMCRC participants with an initial introduction to the IMCRC and access to benchmarking and diagnostics leading to the development and implementation of individual pathway plans designed for your business.
2. Events - coming soon
IMCRC particpants have access to low-cost SME events covering a range of topics including technology training workshops, networking opportunities and clustering workshops.
The IMCRC Annual Conference will showcase results and success in the application of new technologies, new product development and successful non-technical projects, and the impacts of all of these.
