At Cambridge Enterprise, we’re always looking for opportunities to work with researchers in University departments. This autumn we are running a series of workshops to help you to find the commercial path that’s right for you, whichever discipline you work in. We can help, whether you are interested in applying your skills and expertise as a paid consultant or whether your work in the Life Sciences or Physical Sciences has a commercial application.

On Tuesday 20 September 2016, we’re holding our ever-popular Consultancy 101 workshop at the University Centre. This free session provides advice on effectively managing consultancy projects, tips on how to make life easier when working with industry and trouble-shooting for some of the key issues faced by consultants.

On Monday 3 October 2016, we will host a Life Sciences commercialisation workshop at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute on the Addenbrooke’s Hospital site. The session will offer insights from researchers who have successfully commercialised their research with the help of Cambridge Enterprise, and will include opportunities to network with other researchers in the field.

And on Wednesday 5 October 2016, we’re holding a Physical Sciences commercialisation workshop at the Maxwell Centre on the West Cambridge site. The event will offer researchers, postdocs and PhD students information about developing their ideas and inventions into opportunities that are attractive to business and investors. Speakers include Professor Jeremy Baumberg, a leader in nanoscience and nanotechnology, who has developed novel devices within Hitachi, IBM, and spin-outs Mesophotonics and Base4. And Professor Tuomas Knowles, who founded spin-out Fluidic Analytics Limited in 2013.

Whether you’re just starting to think about commercialising your intellectual property, or you’re already an avid entrepreneur and keen to meet like-minded people, do join us to learn more about the services Cambridge Enterprise offers.
