This year we will be hosting a joint KE launch event, to promote the external innovations scheme including IPS and CLASP; and officially launch the CLASP challenge areas for 2020 (Security and Environment). It will be held on 5th November 2019 at the Royal College of Physicians in London.
There will be talks from recipients of both schemes, advice and tips on making applications from the Chairs of both the IPS and CLASP Panels, and the Home Office and DEFRA will be discussing some of the UK challenges in the Security and environment sectors. There will be lots of opportunities to discuss the schemes, network with industry/potential collaborators, and get some advice from the Panel.
