The third meet-up in the series, delivered on July the 8th, gave researchers and early stage companies from the Merlin cohort the opportunity to meet a range of 19 global corporates for one to one meetings to explore possible partnerships and build a first-hand understanding of market needs, capabilities and potential commercial opportunities. Merlin participants were required to apply to take part in the meet up and matched with corporates based on sector specialisation and technology fit. Participants were given personalised agendas with timed face to face 20 minute meeting slots with corporates. In addition, there was a networking session to encourage further face to face meetings. This meetup was coorganized with the Centre for Business Innovation (CFBI), from Cambridge.
