Why we are holding this training workshop?

As part of the University of Bristol’s Wellcome Translational Partnerships Award strategy, we are working towards instilling a culture of research translation and impact development within our research community. At its core this strategy encourages industry engagement and commercialisation of research outputs. For this purpose, we are organising a training workshop for researchers to support them in the development of translational plans for their research activities and help them build the essential translational skills that are required for professional growth and long-term employability in multiple sectors. The training will engage the researchers with the enterprise culture of the university and act as a mechanism for strengthening links with the local business community.

Who is the workshop for?

Researchers with an interest in Translational Research.

If you are a researcher who is interested in coming to this workshop please complete the short application form here.

Who we would like to be involved with us

As part of this training we would also like to invite local SMEs to submit research/translational questions that they would like the researchers to answer. This would form part of the workshop activities, where researchers will work in teams with support from trainers, commercialisation managers and knowledge exchange associates to answer these questions and devise answers/translational plans. SME's will be invited to attend the workshop from 1-5pm, including lunch.

So if you are an SME, interested to learn more about the state-of-the-art research being carried at the University of Bristol and keen to develop connections and collaborations, keen to hear about funding opportunities for collaborative projects, we would love for you to join our training day, and if you have a question, you would like the researchers to work on please submit it in on this form Wellcome Trust Workshop SME form (Office document, 133kB) indicating the date of the workshop in your email. If we have lots of interest we may ask if we can postpone your question for a later workshop in 2020, but we will let you know.
