Innovation Institute

Grow Revenue: Benchmark your Innovation

Innovation is like the oxygen that organisations need to stay alive.  Many organisations claim to be innovative but often, the reality is that innovation is fragmented and bolted-on to a non-strategic function. With the consistent reduction in public funding, creating a viable commercial capability is an essential priority for any college.

Investor in Innovations is an integrated, leading-edge Standard that offers a practical way to validate, benchmark and drive innovation systematically. It uses a well-defined framework that connects your industry insights, market intelligence and technical capability with your business model.

A number of colleges are now pursing the Investor in Innovations programme in order to ensure market readiness and to deliver a range of commercial solutions that support employers, enrich curriculum development and connects with the community to strengthen outreach activities.

Paul Rolfe, Head of Technology & Innovation at Highbury College, said: "Working with the NEF to work to gain Investor in Innovation status as well as develop an Innovation Hub has been highly beneficial for Highbury College. The NEF expert team of practitioners and advisors has really helped me and the College understand its current innovation capability and has also helped identify gaps to further develop the strategic innovative capability of the organisation. The team are highly knowledgeable and offer extensive networks of experiences which the College is leveraging to develop its growth plans."
