Committee Call for Executive to Help Drive Innovation

Session: 2012/2013

Date: 23 November 2012

The Northern Ireland Assembly Committee for Enterprise, Trade and Investment has put forward a motion that calls on the Executive to promote awareness of the Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI).  The motion will be debated by the Assembly.

Date: Monday, 26 November 2012

Time: scheduled for 4.30pm

Venue: Assembly Chamber, Parliament Buildings

The SBRI is a way for Government and business to work together to develop innovative solutions to problems and to bring those solutions to the market.  The Committee believes the SBRI offers real opportunities to businesses here, as it is particularly well suited to micro businesses and small and medium sized enterprises. 

Further information on the motion including a letter from the Chairperson and an Assembly Research paper can be viewed here.   

The debate will be streamed live and can be watched here:


Interviews with the Chairperson of the Committee, Patsy McGlone MLA are available upon request.
