11 February, 12pm-2pm, 422 Roberts Building
Interested in how to commercialise your research, form a spin-out company, get paid for external consultancy work, create partnerships with industry and access internal funding?
We are hosting a session on how to engage with industry and innovation, aimed at ECRs (UCL PhDs and postdocs).
- Making research interactive - creating activities for events & festivals
27 February, all-day workshop, venue TBC
Over a one-day session, Dan Plane (Science Museum, Royal Institution), will explore how to turn your own research into interactive activities, including identifying audiences and tailoring content; developing activities based on your own research; and facilitating two-way conversations with a range of visitors.
There will be opportunities to learn from an experienced practitioner as well as through group activities building on your own research and experience, with the chance to develop your own ideas later in the day and leave prepared to go out and develop your own!
