The Enterprise Exchange offers a means to find out more about a topic relating to Enterprise or Knowledge Exchange, framed around a 'Question Time' style panel discussion.
The next event will explore options to fund new technologies and innovations emerging from basic research, with a panel of experts from BBSRC, MRC, Innovate UK and NIHR.
- How translational research can benefit your career and build towards future industrial collaborations.
- Why translational research is important for the University in achieving its mission of increasing knowledge exchange and industrial research
- What schemes are available with each funder, and what will funding panels be looking for in high quality applications?
- How can the University / UMIP work with academics in helping to build the commercial case for translational projects.
