How innovative is travel?

How does the process of innovation work in travel? Can academic research contribute anything to the process of innovation in the sector? These were some of the questions discussed at the recent ITT round-table discussion. Funded by the ESRC, the event brought together senior figures from travel with senior academics from Exeter, Leeds Met and Surrey universities.

Commenting at the end of the event, Steven Freudmann, Chairman of the ITT, noted: “The frank exchange of views was both stimulating and illuminating. The challenge now is to find ways of continuing the engagement with universities in a way that is mutually beneficial”. Several schemes designed to encourage collaboration between businesses and universities were discussed.
