Research Translation and Funding support - BEAMS RCO and UCL I&E joint 1 to 1 support:
Joint BEAMS RCO/Innovation & Enterprise 1 to 1s
BEAMS Research Coordination Office and Innovation & Enterprise are joining efforts to support BEAMS academics who are not sure whether their work needs further research funding (e.g. Research Councils) or is ready for commercialisation and advancement on the TRL scale through Innovate UK funding.
Do you have innovative research outputs and ideas but are not sure what might be the next steps in terms of translation? Would you like to do collaborative R&D with industry but are not familiar with the innovation funding landscape?
