ECIT defines innovation as: “New value creation that leads to competitive advantage”. Our culture of innovation has created an environment that promotes an entrepreneurial spirit and sustainable value creation at all levels and across all functions of ECIT.
We are involved in a number of programmes to strengthen the cyber security response with the UK and beyond, including: HutZero, LORCA and Cyber101.
HutZero is a two-stage programme that connects 20 budding UK entrepreneurs with potential co-founders and a broad network of cyber and innovation experts. HutZero is designed to transform early stage ideas into workable proposals and potential new businesses.
