ISE 1-2-1 Assessments

As part of the Innovative Sector Exchange (ISE) project which provides FREE support to help businesses from the ISE regions in France, Belgium, England & the Netherlands to become more internationalised and to access new markets, we would like to invite you to take advantage of our FREE 1-2-1 Innovation Assessments!

What is an Innovation Assessment?

We have created a diagnostic tool which will help assess your innovation and internationalisation potential.

How does it work?

You will receive a 1-2-1 visit from an ISE expert (for example, in Kent the visit will be carried out by a business adviser from Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce) who will talk to you about your business, about HR, finance, and your international connections in order to give an independent view of your innovation and internationalisation potential. The expert will then go away to score these factors enabling us to formulate some concrete recommendations on actions you can take to unlock your internationalisation potential by offering you access to cross-border and technical knowledge.

You can benefit from an innovation assessment now, regardless of whether you have participated in previous project activities or events and this offer will run until March 2019.

What do you get?

A set of recommendations with concrete actions that you can follow up on and in particular how the ISE project can help you to implement some of these through making contacts in our partner European regions for example. Each case is individual, but generally, we do our best to meet with you for a follow-up and to present you with the recommendations and cross-border solutions in about 4-5 weeks after the initial assessment meeting to ensure that we are tapping into the knowledge and expertise on the other side of the Channel.

The final results will be presented to you in a poster format so you can share with your staff the strengths you have as a business as well as the aspects that need to be worked on and the accompanying action plan.

The 1-2-1s are FREE of charge, but we appreciate that you will have to give up 2-3 hours of your time so that we can carry out the visit.

If your business doesn’t fit within one of the ISE sectors (agri-food, digital & creative, new materials, mechatronics) but you work with companies that do, then please share this information with them and make them aware of this opportunity.
