Find out how another academic researcher found attending an Innovation Workout.

“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
