Warwick i2i

Innovation to Impact is a development programme for Early Career Researchers (ECRs), PhD and masters students run by Warwick Innovations as part of the DeepTech Innovation Centre, offering the opportunity to develop commercial skills through a series of bespoke workshops, alongside one-to-one support and guidance on developing impact strategies and market opportunities.

The next programme will take place online on the 9th, 11th, 16th and 18th March 2021 and is aimed towards masters, PhD, post-doctoral and early career researchers working in any area of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, including life sciences and healthcare. The topics covered will include:

  • Enhancing impact from your research
  • Exploring creative applications for your research
  • Refining your communication skills
  • Identifying markets and opportunities
  • Considering first steps towards commercialisation

After the workshops, delegates will validate the impact of their research by identifying and talking to potential collaborators and customers to better assess the opportunity.

Business mentors will help guide the delegates through this process and (where possible) provide introductions to appropriate contacts.

Funds are available to facilitate customer engagement and can usually be spent on travel, subsistence and entry fees to trade fairs. Due to COVID-19 these funds will instead be available for individuals to use to engage with potential customers online, for example entry fees to online trade fairs.

The course offers researchers a taste of entrepreneurship and will help broaden a number of skills. For more information please contact tim dot francis at warwick dot ac dot uk.
