Innovation Optimiser


Researcher to Innovator Series 1: pathways to creating impact

Wednesday 20th February, 08:15 - 20:00

The Innovation Suite, CTF Building, 46 Grafton Street, Manchester, M13 9NT


The UMIP Innovation Optimiser Researcher to Innovator (R2I) event is the first in a series of bespoke one-day training programmes for Early Career Researchers* (ECRs) at The University of Manchester.

This fully-funded, one-day 'boot-camp' style event, co-developed and delivered by well-respected experts in research and innovation, comprises a series of interactive professional development sessions.

Using the tools, techniques and approaches provided, these sessions will enable ECRs to explore opportunities in their careers for development through commercialisation, equipping them with strategies to take their ideas forward as well as discovering new pathways to funding.

Is this event for me?

Are you an ECR at The University of Manchester with a potential interest in turning your discoveries and ideas into reality? Then prepare yourself for a challenging yet fun, interactive, insightful, practical and highly supportive programme.

This is likely to be of particular interest to those working within the Faculty of Science & Engineering.

A maximum of 30 places are available on a FCFS basis.

*UK Research Council definition of ECR: an individual who is within eight years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or an individual who is within six years of their first academic appointment. These durations exclude any period of career break, e.g. for family care or health reasons. The ‘first academic appointment’ is defined as the first paid contract of employment, either full-time or part-time, which lists research and/or teaching as the primary functions. The award of PhD is defined at the point of successful PhD viva.
