Description

Come and work with us: collaboration with Natural Sciences, University of Stirling

Could your organisation benefit from fresh ideas or solutions based on research and the latest knowledge in natural sciences? We have a reputation for multidisciplinary research that benefits society along with a proven track record of undertaking joint research projects with a range of business partners to develop innovative practices and solutions. The Research Excellence Framework rated almost three-quarters of our research as either world-leading or internationally excellent.

Can we help you?

Following on from our successful and enthusiastic business engagement event in June 2017, we now wish to discuss the mechanisms to optimise the engagement between businesses partners and the Faculty of Natural Sciences. Businesses report that such university-industry interactions have diverse benefits including raising their company profile on campus, enhancing graduate recruitment as well as contributing to staff training and motivation. We also want to work with businesses to ensure our students are work-ready when they graduate. There are many ways that you can collaborate with our teaching and learning to mutual benefit while enhancing the professional development of our students.

Can you join us?

The Faculty of Natural Sciences at the University of Stirling is organising a business engagement event to increase academia and business collaboration. Using facilitated workshops, the event will focus on gaining your views on current and future business needs and will cover:

  • Workshop 1: Undergraduate teaching and research - undergraduate placements / internships including the Stirling Internship Programme and funding opportunities, workplace visits, and other ways of collaborating with businesses

  • Workshop 2: Taught postgraduate teaching and research - collaborative business projects for Masters' dissertations, placements, company visits, talks, training sessions

  • Workshop 3: Research and Funding Opportunities for Innovation and Development including PhD studentships

  • Workshop 4: What next: How else can we help your businesses? How can we work together to fulfil our aspirations for our future society?
