Development opportunity for North East academics

Innovators is a training course for academics at North East universities to develop the real-world impact of their research.

Northern Accelerator is pleased to offer a limited number of places on a prestigious training course for researchers to develop the skills to make a real-world impact with their research.

As part of a small multidisciplinary cohort, you’ll take part in a series of online masterclasses to develop your skills and explore the potential future commercial and societal impact of your work. You’ll learn to effectively communicate your value and think to the future, ensuring your work has an impact beyond academia.

Northern Accelerator’s Innovators training is available to researchers at Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, Sunderland and Teesside Universities. The course is primarily aimed at early career researchers, however it is open to any academic with an interest in developing the skills to realise impact from their research.

If you want to make a positive change by actively applying your research skills and knowledge, find out more and apply by Thursday 24 February.
