Ideas Impact Hub

Whether you want to develop your awareness of innovation and enterprise, or want the know-how to commercialise your research, our Ideas Impact Hub has something to offer.

Our Ideas Impact Hub encourages academics to embrace opportunities for enterprise, providing training to help recognise and exploit intellectual property and realise real-world impact from research.

Two levels of in-depth training are on offer, complimented by one-off sessions on specific subjects throughout the year. 

Innovators is primarily aimed at early career researchers, and is delivered in partnership with Skillfluence, experts in upskilling researchers to work with others to maximise the social and economic impact of their work. The programme offers innovation, enterprise and impact training to help academics realise real-world impact from their research. discover more

 

Future founders is delivered in partnership with innovation and venturing specialists, Viadynamics, and focuses on the knowledge, understanding and commercial skills academics need to establish successful spin-out enterprises or licensing opportunities.
