Research to Impact

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.

Research to Impact is a two-part webinar series 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.

Advance your research 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.

Content is currently delivered online through virtual workshops.
