Join us to help define the Collaboration Centre Network. 

CollaboJam on the Road is designed to reach as many interested parties as possible to input into defining the Collaboration Centre Network (CCN). 

Why get involved?

The discussions from these workshops will directly define elements of the Collaboration Centre Network which is one of the three strands of the Sheffield City Region’s CDI Strategy. The workshops are a facilitated discussion on the issues and opportunities that we need to address in establishing the CCN. They will be run by Jag Goraya and Emma Cheshire of the LEP CDI Team.

At the workshop you will:

- Help define how the Sheffield City Region partners, universities and businesses can work together to create opportunity through the Collaboration Centre Network.

- Learn how businesses and organisations have collaborated to create opportunities and new products.

- Share your practical techniques for successful collaboration and innovation.

Where will we be?  How can I register?

The dates and host venues are listed below. Each workshop is on a Tuesday, starting at 12:30pm and running to 4:30pm. Please select a location to register.

Refreshments will be provided, but we ask you to bring your own lunch. 
Space is limited, so only one registration per organisation please.

Who should take part?

We are keen to take into account as wide a range of views and experiences as possible. The  workshops are open to individuals, businesses and organisations of all sizes who either produce, use or consume the tools, techniques, products or services of the creative and digital industries.
