Our Ideas to Reality Programme is designed to provide members of the University with the guidance and tools to translate their ideas, research and expertise into real-world impact.

If you are an academic, researcher or PhD student based within the University of Cambridge, and would like to learn more about how to commercialise the outcomes of your research or how to use your existing skills and resources to make an impact, our Ideas to Reality programme is the place to start!

The programme focuses on the different routes to commercialisation open to you, including using your expertise as a consultant, collaborating with external companies, and creating a new company or social enterprise.

Upcoming Workshops:

  • Commercialisation 101 – an interactive session that focuses on the journey of an innovation from research to real-world impact.
  • Venture Building 101 – an interactive session focusing on the process of starting a company or social venture.
