The Strategic Technology & Innovation Management (STIM) consortium programme is now heading into its 6th year. Starting in 2013 with 11 industrial members and a portfolio of 7 research projects, the annual rolling programme has gradually expanded. We anticipate more than 20 companies to join the 2018 programme, representing a wide variety of sectors - a key benefit to participating companies. The research portfolio is expanding too, with 20 projects planned for next year, ranging from visualising portfolios to digital transformation. The STIM website (www.ifm.eng.cam.ac.uk/research/ctm/stim) will be updated in January to reflect the 2018 programme - in the meantime, if of interest please contact Dr Rob Phaal for more information (email@example.com).
