Scale-Up Online Innovation Workshop – for academic researchers

Scale-Up Online Innovation Workshop – for academic researchers

About the Workshop

The role that academics can play within a business such as problem solving and injecting new expertise is highly valued by innovative SMEs. This interactive online workshop is an opportunity for Early Career Researchers, Postdoctoral Researchers and PhDs to work with businesses to apply their knowledge to business specific challenges.

We’ve reshaped this event to suit the online environment and to ease your schedule and it will now be delivered in two digestible modules across two days (8 & 9 June). The sessions will be in the morning.

Delivered with our partners Strategyzer, the programme uses the Business Model Canvas as the central tool for the businesses taking part, alongside yourself as the academic partner, to really examine their existing business model and look for opportunities to inject new innovation.

Benefits of taking part:

 Open up collaboration opportunities

Potential to form a lasting relationship with the company you work with

Opportunity to apply your expertise in a business setting

Get insights into the principals of the Business Model Canvas to inform teaching and research

As well as the two half day workshops, there is a requirement to attend two webinars. The first one introduces the Business Model Canvas and the second introduces the concept of testing assumptions.

Check out the agenda for the two-days

This programme is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.

“The workshop has provided me with a greater understanding of the business model canvas. This is incredibly beneficial; academics need to be business aware and directly feed this awareness back into our approach to research projects.”

Dr Simon King, Research Fellow at The University of Surrey Advanced Technology Institute

“The workshop identified why the R&D process is essential to empower a company’s business model. Moving forward we will ensure new projects start with the principles put forward from the Business Model Canvas, asking questions aligned with those proposed by the Strategyzer model and ensuring these questions are continually asked as the project develops.”

Micheal Hanley, University of Exeter
