Have you ever thought about the commercial potential of your research?
We would like to invite you to our recruitment event being held on Monday 19th May 12-1pm at Birmingham Research Park.
Medici is an intensive training programme designed for research staff wanting to become involved in the commercial development of research or who are already involved in a project and want to improve their business related skills and knowledge in order to engage more professionally in this arena.
The aim of the course to introduce you to some key business concepts and terminology to help you to understand how business operates and makes decisions. The areas we cover include building relationships with business, finance, market analysis, writing a business plan (including raising finance), protection of intellectual property, networking, negotiation, sales and pitching skills. 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.
Application forms for Medici 2014/15 are available from Sofia Hansrod, email@example.com. Places on the course are allocated on a first come first served basis.
