We have some inspirational speakers lined up including Physicists who have commercialised their research, either applying their know how to industry or starting a business, as well as speakers from the Entrepreneurial community who will be sharing how to develop an entrepreneurial mind-set and the importance of networking with the wider community. All staff and postgraduate students are welcome. Cakes and biscuits will be provided - bring your own coffee. Photos may be take at these events and used for publicity purposes.
