Working with business

Nicola, Ruby and Sihan were invited to participate in a lunchtime seminar for the University of Edinburgh, to share experiences of projects involving academics collaborating with business partners. The seminar outline:

Hosted by Jen Ross, Deputy Director (KE) for Research and Knowledge Exchange
“The research funding landscape is changing, and industry links look likely to be increasingly important for some funding streams in the coming years. Our College is keen to support academics to make more links with industry, including small businesses and social enterprises, in ways that are productive, creative and help our research have impact. This event is an opportunity for you to hear from colleagues at Moray House who have had experience of working with businesses, to get some insights from Edinburgh Innovations about how they can help support you to make business links, and to consider what opportunities might exist in your area of research. All are welcome, and lunch will be provided. Please sign up by emailing
