What is the Innovation Leadership programme?

The Innovation Leadership Programme*, delivered through the Keele Gateway, provides small to medium enterprises based in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire with fully funded support to enhance and develop the skills, knowledge and attributes needed to take their business to the next level. Delivered across six two-day sessions, participants gain access to a unique blend of one-to-one coaching, guidance and action learning from experienced academics and expert guest speakers.

Applications for the programme’s next cohort, commencing in October 2022, are now being accepted.

The Keele University Innovation Leadership programme (also referred to as the Mercia Centre for Innovation Leadership programme) is delivered through the Keele University Science & Innovation Park Smart Innovation Hub (Ref: 32R17P01691). This programme is part-funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) as part of the England Structural and Investments Funds (ESIF) Growth Programme.
