Support networks and facilities for innovation and R&D

Chambers of Commerce


The British Chambers of Commerce form a network of 100 quality-accredited chambers throughout the UK.

Becoming a member of a chamber gives a business access to services such as:

  • training
  • information
  • resources
  • networking
  • savings on essential overheads

Some services are available online. Larger chambers may offer schemes to encourage innovation and foster best practice. Many areas also have more informal networks, some supporting particular industries.
