Entrepreneurship events

About Entrepreneurship events

We run a series of Entrepreneurship Masterclasses and Start-Up Clinics for staff and postgraduate students. Our workshops link understanding in physics to the functionality of ingredients, formulations and food processes. These are open to the public.

Our Masterclasses are delivered by inspirational speakers 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.

Our Start-Up Clinics involve colleagues who will share their industrial concept or start up status, along with key challenges preventing them from progressing their idea or growing their business. Attendees will then be asked to offer solutions and advice on how these challenges can be overcome.

Workshops linking the latest understanding in physics to the functionality of ingredients, formulations and food processes are open to the public.
