Entrepreneurship is an approach to problem solving that is applicable to academic research. The EXPLORE workshop offers a new dimension for researchers to envision, direct, and deliver impact from their research.

What to expect

Through tools, frameworks and interactive exercises, you will discover the entrepreneurial potential of your ideas, and develop skills and approaches to deliver impact from your research activities.

EXPLORE examines the underlying principles of entrepreneurship and how these can be applied to your research. The workshop aims to develop high-potential ideas, laying the groundwork for future venture-creation activities.
