If you are successful with your application and are offered a place on the programme, your team will be required to meet the following expectations:

  • Pre Bootcamp teleconference to discuss programme and expectations for the ECR/EL w/c 7th October 2019
  • Cohort 25 Launch – residential bootcamp – w/c 14th October 2019
    The ECR/EL will be required to attend across all days, the Senior Researcher, TTO and Adviser must join at later points over the 3 days.  Please note, due to the venue and delivery arrangements for the bootcamp, we are not able to accept additional team members to attend. Also, please note that the ECR/EL and SR roles can only be undertaken by one person per role (i.e. time cannot be split between two staff). The ECR/EL must be employed full-time on the programme for 3 months until the last date of the Options Roundabout.
  • The ECR/EL will access bi-weekly teleconferences with the Programme Manager and other programme teams and monthly reporting is required.
  • The ECR/EL will attend an Options Roundabout Training day approximately one week prior to the Options Roundabout at a venue to be confirmed which supports the preparation of the final presentation to the panel.
  • The Team will deliver their ‘ICURe Journey’ final presentation to the Options Roundabout Panel (each team will be allocated a slot on one of 2-3 days.) The Options Roundabout panel will make a recommendation to the team on commercialisation options they feel are most appropriate for the project/team at that stage.
