Sheffield Hallam University Enterprise Centre

Sheffield has two great universities:
Sheffield Hallam University's Enterprise Centre is literally just across the road from Central Library which hosts Sheffield Inventors Group. Hallam has an enormous pool of expertise ranging from Arts and Humanities to Transport and Logistics.

Yesterday the Inventors Group welcomed Heath Reed from the University's Art and Design Research Centre and its designfutures consultancy to talk about how Hallam can help inventors, start-ups and other small and medium enterprises. They seem to have done some work for Andrew Jones one of Huddersfield's institutions. To read more about Heat's talk, see my article "Sheffield Inventors Group: A Link with Hallam" in my Inventors' Club blog.

Pork pie packaging is just one example of Hallam's expertise. To find out more it is worth checking out the Innovation Futures page on its website. Some of their research and consultancy work may be funded.
