Informal café setting for presentations by post-graduate students to highlight innovative things they are doing with their research beyond academia. This may include commercialising their research, undertaking public engagement activities, making an impact, or collaborating with external partners.
Why should I attend?
Sharing with peers has been shown to be very beneficial - we hope that you will be inspired by others, and that the Café will spark ideas which you can apply to your own post-graduate studies.
When: Tuesday 21 June 2016, 5.30pm - 8pm
Where: Careers Seminar Room 1, Ground Floor, University House
Geoff Malleck, a serial entrepreneur turned Academic who is currently visiting from the University of Waterloo in Canada shall reflect on his experiences.
Anthony Knight lets us know about the intellectual property issues and ongoing collaborative work which resulted from his PhD in systems biology, in his talk:
Sex, drugs and heart disease!
Felix Hovsepian, who has a PhD in Computer Science and works with tech start ups to address technology strategy and much more.
Failure is success in progress!
Why should I consider presenting in the future?
Presenters have the opportunity to practice their presentation skills and gain constructive feedback on their presentation style. The cross-disciplinary nature of these events means that the research presented will be the follow-up topic for discussion amongst the group.
If you’re a research or taught postgraduate and would like to either present or to act as Chair at a future Café Enterprise, please email: pgresearchskills at warwick dot ac dot uk
