The course runs over 3 two day modules (from October to December) and  a final day in January. The training is delivered by a number of external providers and involves lots of interaction and group work.

The Medici Programme provides an excellent opportunity to network with like minded people, we can take up to 40 delegates on the course each year, some of whom will be from other universities.

Feedback from previous fellows:  

"The Medici Enterprise programme gave me an excellent insight into the factors that drive industry to work with academic collaborators. The course has been very useful in improving my own interactions with industry, including obtaining industrial grant funding and contract research"

 Dr Helen Cooper, Reader in Mass Spectrometry - University of Birmingham


“This course was very comprehensive and was a real eye opener on the multifaceted aspects business. It was extremely interesting to focus in a challenging and supportive climate on business opportunities and culture. This has now resulted in the development of several projects which will hopefully expand the scope and applications of my research.”

Dr Francois-Xavier Li, Sport & Exercise Sciences - University of Birmingham
