Submitting an application to the Advice Service
The Innovation Nexus advisory service operates through an enquiry management system that allows you to revisit your enquiry and submit additional information or questions to the advisors dealing with your request.
Submitting an enquiry to the advisory service does not take long but there are a few steps to take:
1. Use the link below to go to the GM AHSN's application system
2. Create an account
3. Create a new submission (select the Innovation Nexus Enquiry option) and give it a logical name, e.g., the name of your innovation
4. You will now see your enquiry dashboard. You can upload additional information e.g., documents or videos to support your enquiry. First complete the Innovation Nexus Registration Form - this will store your personal and company information for all future enquiries. To submit an enquiry click on the link for the Innovation Nexus Enquiry Questionnaire.
5. Once you have completed the questionnaire, return to the dashboard and click 'Submit your enquiry'.
