Current Innovation Networks
"As REWIND, we benefited from a strong relationship with Immerse UK [Innovation Network - now known as Immersive Tech Network] and the Department of International Trade which enabled us to gain global recognition for our work. Eventually, REWIND was acquired in 2021 by Magnopus, creating a global leader in the immersive industry. Together, we are accelerating the creation of the content, tools, and platforms needed for the next generation of immersive entertainment experiences that blur the lines between the physical and digital worlds."
— Solomon Rogers, Global Director of Innovation at Magnopus (formerly Founder REWIND)
“The development of cost-effective treatments for disorders of the brain and nervous system is one of the most important challenges of the first half of this century. This transformative roadmap for neurotechnology in the UK is a unique proposal that will ensure that the UK accelerates its leadership position in this field.”
— Dr Lothar Krinke, CEO, Magstim Group
“To use AI effectively, businesses need access to large amounts of standardised data. A project funded through the Next Generation Services Challenge and part of the AI for Services Innovation Network has helped us achieve just that. This is going to be a global wave – if we get this right in the UK, we can create a set of technology companies in the UK which can win on a global basis.”
— Engine B’s Co-founder and CEO, Shamus Rae
