25 ideas generated at first UK idea jam
EMEC hosted the first UK idea jam on wave and tidal energy on Tuesday 26 June. Held in Orkney, the event consisted of an intensive idea generation session. The participants’ experience ranges from various sectors and areas, for example, data, environmental/consents, business development, Oil & Gas. Each person brought a challenge from their area of expertise, and then sifted through potential solutions. The delegates then chose the best idea(s) for their challenge and worked on a brief follow-up plan including identifying the benefits and the next steps. These will then be validated by industry around the North Sea Region and ranked.
The next event will focus on hydrogen and will take place during the summer.
The feedback showed that the participants went away with great ideas and some powerful new tools to improve idea generation and implementation in their businesses.
