In addition to the awards programme Innovate UK will be holding a series of Women in Innovation Business Success Events to help unlock the potential of women nationwide. The events will highlight opportunities for innovation support, provide expert advice and encourage discussion and networking. The Belfast event will be held on Tuesday 5 March 2019 in Titanic Belfast.
