Innovation and Business Skills Training

ECCI, Friday 02 March 2018 10:00 – 16:00

At some point in your PhD/career you will have to research real world problems, ask someone for money, write about the ‘impact’ of your work and summarise your work for a non-academic audience. Learn how to do this successfully.
Part of the NERC ECCI Innovation programme this workshop features problem-based learning case studies based around the application of earth science technologies to real-world problems.

The learning outcomes will include:

gaining knowledge about the way the earth sciences interact with the outside world
learning various functional skills such as finance and project management
learning and practising a number of personal transferable skills such as team working and science communication
being introduced to the NERC Environment YES competition where these skills can be practised in a competitive but supportive environment

Versions of this workshop have been run very successfully at other NERC CDTs.
