Cornwall is one of the most economically deprived areas in the UK. And yet is home to a large number of innovative, sustainable and dynamic SMEs. IMPACT2022 is an event that targets local Cornish businesses and professionals as well as students of the University of Exeter.
During IMPACT, students and local businesses will meet and work together on their problems in sessions led by industry experts and academics to develop and improve their solutions to the given problems.
This is a win-win experience for both students and SMEs. It gives local businesses a chance to develop innovative solutions to some of the problems they are facing. It provides students with the opportunity to grow their commercial awareness and problem-solving skills by working with real businesses and professionals to develop solutions to challenges those businesses are currently facing.
