Collaboration between university researchers and industry has become an increasingly important part of a modern academic’s role, but the process can seem opaque and confusing.
Imperial Innovations has developed ‘Bridging the Gap’ to help academic staff at Imperial explore and elucidate the key concepts and skills required for working with industry, commercialising technology and demonstrating impact.
‘Bridging the Gap’ is free to Imperial academics.
The course is called ‘Bridging the Gap’ because it can be difficult and complex to engage the worlds of academia and industry, from either side of the divide. This short introduction course will provide knowledge and skills to enable participants how to do so and will help them bridge that gap with greater confidence and success.
New sessions are continually being developed. If you would like to attend the course, or you would like to arrange for the course to be run for your department or lab group, please use the form about the bottom of the page to register your interest.
