This online course is run by the Researcher Academy
The Researcher Academy courses are very popular and the majority are run in both semesters to give you the opportunity to attend at a time of the year that suits you. Semester 1 courses will be available for booking from the second week of October and Semester 2 courses from the second week of February.
This course is particularly suitable for second and third year research students, as well as early career research staff. However the course is suitable to other staff as well who have an interest in exploiting ideas gained during scientific and technological research. Researchers and staff with business ideas that are not related to their research are also welcome.
This course will consist of two webinars, run on the same day. In order to get the training point associated with this course, you must attend both webinars. Webinar 1 will be 10:30-12:00 and webinar 2 will be 14:00-15:30.
This course consists of two 1.5-hour webinars in the same day (10:30-12:00 and 14:00-15:30). Participants must attend both webinars to gain the training point associated with the course. The first webinar will describe the theory of commercialisation and the various ways that research ideas can move from the research-based environment into the commercial setting. The second webinar will describe practical concepts within commercialisation and provide examples of previous ideas, discussing their stories and how they were made into a commercial product.
This course is designed for postgraduate research students and any staff with an interest in commercialisation. The principal aim is to help researchers understand the process of taking a science or technology-based idea to commercial exploitation.
After this course you will:
understand the theory of commercialisation
understand how research ideas can be commercialised
have seen examples of previous research ideas that have been made into products or services
