CLT helps corporates figure out how to build their innovations into revenue-generating products and services by identifying new value propositions in adjacent markets. We do this by carrying out a landscape analysis to validate an innovation’s “techno-market fit”, a competitive analysis of alternative solutions, and an economic analysis for investment decision-making.
CLT also works with industry supply chains to maximise the value of their investments in innovation and achieve total-sector benefits. We do this by pinpointing technical or operational challenges that are common across most players in a sector. Then we organise innovation challenges to mutualise the cost of solving the problem between innovators and likely industry buyers.
This boosts the confidence of small innovators to develop new solutions because there is a clear market pull from industry buyers. And it lowers the cost of innovation for each individual end-user since they pooled resources to solve common problems.
Open innovation embraces collaboration. CLT knows this approach is necessary for clean tech since it focuses resource and effort on agreed priorities. We have used our open innovation ethos when working with, for example, Innovate UK through its Catapult Centres and BEIS’s Energy Innovation programme.
CLT is a respected player in the UK’s cleantech innovation space. We advise the government on how to set up and run effective innovation programmes. And we work with businesses to turn innovative ideas into revenue-generating products and services.
