Working with IISE

Innovation DMG Mori Seiki

Creating a stimulating environment for innovation, learning, problem solving and creativity

Helping your business to innovate

The Institute is a place where you can access knowledge, funding, expertise and technology to help you to research, develop products and processes, and drive innovation in your business.

We recognise that companies who want to innovate, and those who can do so with sustainability in mind, are more likely to grow. We want to work with companies who have this ambition.

We can help you to identify projects relevant to your business and industry, pull together multi-disciplinary teams to develop projects, and access the innovation, research and development funding which can unlock innovation potential. 

Examples of how we can work together include:

  • Time2Innovate – a new fund to enable SMEs in the cities of Derby and Nottingham, and the Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire counties, to access funding and expertise to support research and innovation.

  • Knowledge Transfer Partnerships - funding to access cutting edge technology and equipment, highly qualified academics, and a dedicated, recently graduated individual to work on a project central to your strategic business needs.

  • Research projects, of any size, using the latest technology, equipment and expertise at the Institute.
