SA – Engaging with Industry
May 23 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am
Perhaps you have a bold idea, some exciting data, or a prototype to optimise and license – and you want to engage with industry. To translate your research to knowledge, practice, policy or product, you need to know how to pitch the benefits and impact of your research clearly to a wide range of audiences, and what it is exactly potential industry partners need to know.
As part of the Industry Mentoring Network in STEM (IMNIS) you can connect with some dynamic individuals at this event – Engaging with Industry. Our panellists will share their top pointers for industry-academia collaborations and key advice in developing your strategy to engage with industry. Discussion will focus on how, when and why to engage with industry, the importance of understanding commercialisation, milestones, timelines and budgets, developing strong professional connections beyond academia, as well as how developing an entrepreneurial mindset can facilitate resilience and success in any setting.
