Aspect Festival21 took place in June, running as a series of webinars, workshops, panel sessions, performances, networking events and even a specially created radio in celebration of the Aspect Community and their achievements over the last 3 years of Research England Connecting Capability Fund (CCF) funding.
The celebration highlighted how the social sciences, arts and humanities are tackling the most complex societal challenges of our time, and covered a broad range of topical and important areas within social science commercialisation and entrepreneurship.
With high profile panellists offering valuable insights, a global audience from 15 countries came together to discuss the barriers to research commercialisation; engaging businesses; stimulating impactful entrepreneurship, and exploring the unique opportunities of commercialising the social sciences, arts and humanities to build a brighter, more inclusive future.
