Welcome to the CoPS Innovation Centre Website

The CoPS Innovation Centre is a joint venture between SPRU - Science and Technology Policy Research) at the University of Sussex and the CENTRIM Centre for Research in Innovation Management at the University of Brighton. It receives its core funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). The Centre works closely with Innovation Studies Centre at the Tanaka Business School at Imperial College and with the Innovation Leadership Centre at Cranfield University.

The aim of the Centre is to make a fundamental contribution to our understanding and management of innovation in complex high value, capital goods, industrial products, systems, constructs and networks. We contribute our findings to our industrial partners, policy makers and the academic community. The Centre provides an umbrella for world class UK research in the CoPS area and links up with several leading international research groups working on similar issues. CoPS represent the capital goods which underpin all modern economic activity. As such they are vitally important to the UK and all other countries.
