Survey: How can we drive innovation


24th July 2023

We are excited to announce the launch of a survey asking academics to reflect on how their role is changing.

With universities increasingly encouraged to drive innovation (whether in the public or private sector) and growth (whether social or economic); do we have the right reward, recognition and promotion practices in place?

If you are a member of a university faculty please do provide your views and encourage your colleagues to do so! We are particularly keen to hear the views of Arts, Humanities and Social Science faculty members.

The survey is part of the Aspect-funded APPLE project and focuses on how innovation and entrepreneurship is included as part of academic work and career pathways.
