Academics are increasingly being expected to demonstrate the impact of their research and engage with business and external agencies.
They need strategies to help realise the potential of their research for major social or economic benefit.
This short course provides essential frameworks and strategies for articulating and amplifying the impact of research outputs. The course is based around real case studies and situations drawn from a wide variety of disciplines and industries. It covers a similarly broad range of ‘impacts’, from social and collaborative models through to new ‘for-profit spin-outs’. The sessions are highly interactive – with an emphasis on helping academics to apply innovation frameworks and business strategies within their own context.
