Innovation and Enterprise: A Commercial Perspective
New

Fri 24 Mar 2017

Description

There is growing expectation for business acumen in academics. This workshop provides you with insight and skills to work more effectively with industry. The aim is to develop project management skills in the context of industry academia collaborations (IAC).

In this workshop we explore a formal project development process from idea inception through to project implementation. You will practice project management tools and techniques and discuss cognitive and behavioural skills needed to implement them.

We will discuss current UK industry, government (BIS) and research council expectations of IAC and the existing funding opportunities.

The skills learned will support your effective interactions and well-managed projects with industry.
