RCUK Business Plan Competition

Internal News - 08 November 2005

Get a head start with RCUK business plan competition

The University’s Research and Innovation Services will be holding a one-day ‘clinic’ to help researchers interested in entering the Research Councils UK (RCUK) business plan competition to develop their proposals.

At the clinic, technology transfer staff will be on hand to discuss project ideas and to offer support and advice, for example on business models or intellectual property strategies, ahead of the 31 December deadline.

The competition, open to researchers from all disciplines, includes training and mentoring designed to help researchers develop their business skills and has a prize of £25,000 to further the business idea.

RCUK are requesting that before entrants submit their one-page summary, they should first inform their University Technology Transfer Office. To do this, please send the proposal to David Coleman by Wednesday 14 December.

Anyone interested in taking part in the clinic should contact David by Friday 18 November 2005.
