Event information

Increase the impact of your research and industry engagement using entrepreneurial methods.

Research to Impact is a webinar for researchers (PhD candidates and upwards) to introduce practical tools that help you take your research out of academia, engage with industry and find new opportunities.

As a researcher, you may be frustrated by the difficulty of finding ways to apply your research or ideas into meaningful results in the real world. The changing landscape has led to career challenges for early stage researchers and lower funding for research team leaders.

Advance your projects by upskilling and enabling you to find answers about industry needs, how you can adapt to make you more prevalent in your field and attract the resources you need to take your projects forward.

We use lean innovation methods developed for startups and proven to work for researchers to:

  • Show you practical new ways to think about innovation that will enable you to better engage the community
  • Help you create real collaborative conversations with industry that can lead to opportunities
  • Challenge you with fast-paced real-world tasks
  • Empower you to explore new options for your career, industry engagement and commercialising your inventions
  • Give you new tools to connect and explain your research

Program Structure

Over the course of the webinar, we will cover:

  • Research innovation essentials
  • Finding need and your big impact

Who can benefit?

Researchers from masters to senior academics who:

  • are interested in exploring new ways to have impact or engage externally.
  • don’t have to have a team or a specific invention.
