However big, however small your ideas, Research Ventures is about finding out how you can develop them into something that matters for you.
SICSA has 10 fully-funded places for research students in Computer Science to attend the next Research Ventures event, which will take place at the University of Glasgow on 16 & 17 May 2016.
We’ll cover all the areas you’d expect from an entrepreneurship course (different business models, protecting your ideas, where to get funding…the nuts and bolts) but it doesn’t stop there. In two days, we get to the heart of what it means to be an enterprising researcher. You’ll meet some inspirational people and come away with new ideas, friends and collaborators, as well as a better understanding of what motivates you and how you can transform your ideas into reality
The course and the skills you will learn from it is designed to be relevant to you now, in your research environment, as well as in the future, whether you see that as being in academia or in another kind of role. The course is being run in collaboration with Enterprise Campus
Who is it for?
This course brings together early-career researchers (PGR and postdoctoral) from a wide variety of backgrounds, including physics, computer sciences, engineering, energy, chemistry and marine and earth sciences. It’s aimed at researchers with an interest in

Knowledge exchange, research impact and winning funding for academic career progression
Future employment in industry
Collaboration with researchers from other disciplines
