The BRIDGE (Building Researchers Innovation and Developing Goals with Enterprise) programme is run by Brookes Enterprise Support, to promote enterprise, entrepreneurship, and innovation as part of the researchers’ broader development. It is aimed at research students and also research related staff from any discipline with little or no business experience. This programme will provide opportunity for all researchers, to develop an enterprising mindset by gaining entrepreneurial skills and exploring ways of using their research to develop a career outside of traditional academic pathways.
The programme will be delivered through workshops and panel sessions every Tuesday, starting on 31st January. Most sessions will run 12-2pm unless otherwise stated. The sessions are designed as individual workshops, hence can be individually attended however in order to make most of the programme full attendance is highly recommended. These sessions will be facilitated by a mix of Oxford Brookes and also industry experts. The last session will provide the opportunity to researchers to pitch their ideas and will take place on 7th March. Mentoring for pitching will be provided to those interested in presenting their work and winners will be offered a space in IceCube at Wheatley Campus, further business mentoring from experts and also being shortlisted in our Spark and Fuel programmes with the potential to win funding.
