Two Day Bootcamp
The next programme will take place in 2024 dates to be confirmed. Please follow this link to ICURe Engage, which replaces this programme in terms 1 & 2:
It 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 bootcamp focuses on topics which 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.
Warwick Innovations 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.
The course offers researchers a taste of entrepreneurship and will help broaden a number of skills. For more information please contact joanna dot bates at warwick dot ac dot uk.
