This innovative, international and highly prestigious course provides PhD students with skills such as intellectual property management, communication, networking, fundraising, intercultural collaboration, entrepreneurship, team work and leadership skills. It will deliver tailored, inspirational, professional skills training through facilitated workshops to small groups of young researchers. The training will be put into a context and exemplified in seminars led by internationally renowned academic researchers who themselves are engaged in collaborative research within various thematic areas.

Colleagues from business and industry will be involved in the delivery of training to ensure diversity of delivery and focus as well as to establish strong outreach potential.
