Start at Best Award Announcement

Enabling and Empowering Technology Transfer Teams

MULTIPLY is delighted to have been awarded Start at Best, Workplace Innovation funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020.

The funding is to enable and empower technology transfer teams. MULTIPLY works with a wide range of specialist sub-contractors and collaborators globally. The challenge is to effectively engage with teams empowering them to be more innovative and enabling them to effectively make decisions. The Start at Best Workplace Innovation project is an opportunity to focus on our internal innovation and communication processes, with the aim of driving productivity, innovation capability and business competitiveness.

We will be building tools and processes to empower our teams and enable greater innovation thinking.  Bringing new ideas to the table will help lift the teams as well as MULTIPLY. We will build out our ideation and prioritisation process (part of the Mine and Manage phases in MULTIPLY’s Framework© ) and develop a playbook.

This playbook will be made available publicly in 2021 to support and enable technology transfer innovation in other teams and companies.

This is the first phase of a wider internal development project focused on innovation and technology transfer. MULTIPLY is looking forward to this journey and sharing the outcomes with a wider network of SMEs to inspire and support workplace innovation.
