Innovation & Technology Development

Translating emerging technologies into valuable products

Haughton Design fully appreciates and embraces the value of creating new technology, our innovative design approach, solid engineering heritage, and network of industry partners means we are able to effectively translate emerging technology into proof of concept prototypes and commercial products.

Our thorough development process will generate valuable intellectual property, identify solutions to potential challenges and then develop the technology into a desirable fully functioning prototype for evaluation by yourself or other potential technology users.

Building value, overcoming challenges and reducing risks

Haughton Design’s cross sector, collaborative approach and strong networks mean you benefit from access to a wide range of fresh ideas and technical expertise. Our experience of innovation – working across many sectors and delivering tangible products to market is highly valued by our clients. By quickly identifying opportunities, tackling the right problems, issues and challenges to be overcome, we will then help you build strong foundations for better and faster innovation. Doing this early in a project means more and stronger, ideas can be explored.

Using our expertise ensures numerous opportunities can be generated then captured whilst overall risk and overall investment is low. It is then much easier to identify the best ideas, strip out any that will waste time, and focus design investment on those which will generate the strongest returns.

The UK government believes in this approach too, it has it’s own investment program called Design Foundations Grants. If you are looking to develop game changing new technology or a new product within the sectors it is trying to develop then perhaps we can help you. Funding is currently available in the following sectors:

  • Health and Life Sciences
  • Infrastructure Systems
  • Manufacturing and Materials
  • Emerging and Enabling Technologies
