Annual Event 2020
The Aspect Annual Event 2020 took place across September and October, running as a series of webinars covering a broad range of topical and important areas within social science commercialisation and entrepreneurship.
Some sessions were thematic in nature – with high profile panellists offering valuable insights – while others took more of a ‘how to’ focus on some of the key operational challenges in this area.
Attracting a broad audience of academics, researchers, KE professionals and university practitioners, all the sessions were open to members and non-members of the Aspect network (and were free to attend).
