How does it work?

Sensor technology is an emerging niche area and we recently gave a group of New Zealand and UK businesses exposure to new systems and product developments through a joint project with the British High Commission. We brought the group together at a conference in Wellington to enable them to learn from each other about innovations in sensor technology, exchange ideas and establish relationships for shared initiatives.

If you’re in the business of innovation, whether a start-up or SME or with the potential to innovate more and grow faster, we can help you.
