Event description

Description

The University of Strathclyde introduced new Strategic Themes in 2017, including the Innovation & Entrepreneurship cross-cutting theme, which is being coordinated by Dr Nusa Fain and Professor Sarah Drakopoulou Dodd. We are now planning activities aimed at ensuring all researchers and academics across all faculties have the opportunity to participate in the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Theme activities.

To this end, a workshop will be held on Wednesday 25th April, from 11am to 1:30pm, which will include lunch and refreshments. This workshop will provide the opportunity for the Strathclyde research community to communicate their research to colleagues, with a view to forming new cross-disciplinary collaborations around the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Theme. The collaborative groupings formed will be well placed to respond to upcoming funding opportunities, including RCUK, H2020, Innovate UK and the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), which has a significant allocation of funding to support cross-disciplinary research and development activity.

The workshop will begin with a presentation on current University plans and activities within the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Theme, followed by an opportunity for individuals to get together and discuss challenges, ideas and aspirations for research and KE in Innovation & Entrepreneurship topics. There will also be time set aside for participants to network with colleagues and to develop ideas for cross-disciplinary collaborations and projects.

The proposed agenda for the workshop is as follows:

11:00 Welcome, theme overview, and funding opportunities
11:20 Subtheme Breakout Session 1
12:00 Subtheme Breakout Session 2
12:30 Voting on subthemes, buffet lunch & networking
13:00 Next Steps
