Would you like to be part of Engineering YES in 2013? This award winning national enterprise and research commercialisation course attracts teams of researchers from across the country who work together to build a business plan for a fictitious engineering spin-out idea. Attending this event will immerse you in all aspects of the commercialisation process from understanding which ideas can be brought to market; how you get them there; who might buy them; how to protect them and who to ask for investment. You will also learn whether you might enjoy working in a high pressured, fast paced business environment. Alongside this you will hone your teamworking, networking, communication and presentation skills as well as having a memorable few days away from Loughborough.
You will need to be available for one of the two remaining training heats, the briefing session and the grand final date in case you win through to compete for the top prize of £2000.
Briefing session Monday 8 April – from Loughborough University or via Webinar
Training heat 1 Sunday 28 April – Wednesday 1 May Holiday Inn Leeds/Brighouse
Training heat 2 Sunday 12 May – Wednesday 15 May Holiday Inn Milton Keynes
Training heat 3 Sunday 2 June – Wednesday 5 June Holiday Inn Coventry FULL
