ABaCuss Phase 2

• Phase 1 •• Phase 2


Aspect member: University of Glasgow 

What was the project doing?

This project focused on intrapreneurial placements and training. The placement aimed to adapt to the changing funding and career landscape that was ever-increasing the centrality of non-academic partnerships and business engagement. In Phase 2, the project focused tightly on academics across our Interdisciplinary Research Themes doing short-term placements with businesses.

Why was this needed?

Funders were increasingly requiring meaningful engagement with private sector partners and/or asking for demonstrable impact in the innovation ecosystem. Academics at all career stages needed training, experience, and relationships that allowed them to respond to the changes in funding and be competitive across the board. This program equipped academics with valuable training and experience to achieve these aims.

How could members get involved?

The project team was happy to share their experience of the student-focused program ran last year, as well as share information on what they were doing this year.
