A new fully-funded training programme available for 30 UoM Early Career Researchers

An exciting opportunity for 30 University of Manchester Early Career Researchers* (ECRs) will take place on Wednesday 20th February 2019 here at the Core Technology Facility on Grafton Street.

The UMIP Innovation Optimiser Researcher to Innovator (R2I) event is the first in a series of bespoke one-day training programmes for ECRs.

This event will enable the participants to explore their own capacity to innovate and be entrepreneurial. It will allow them to explore opportunities in commercialisation and equip them with strategies to move forward with ideas, as well as discover new pathways to funding.


As a researcher at an early stage in your career, it can be both daunting and exciting to discover that, increasingly, universities are encouraging you to maximise the potential impact of your research. This fully-funded, one-day ‘boot-camp’ style event comprises a series of interactive professional development sessions, which will enable you to identify skills and opportunities to develop impact through commercialisation.

This is likely to be of particular interest to those working within the Faculty of Science & Engineering.

If you would like to benefit from this bespoke programme of support, please register using EVENTBRITE by the 31st January 2019. Places are available on a FCFS basis.

Please note: this event is exclusive to Early Career Researchers at The University of Manchester. 

*UK Research Council definition of ECR: an individual who is within eight years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or an individual who is within six years of their first academic appointment. These durations exclude any period of career break, e.g. for family care or health reasons. The ‘first academic appointment’ is defined as the first paid contract of employment, either full-time or part-time, which lists research and/or teaching as the primary functions. The award of PhD is defined at the point of successful PhD viva.
