UMIC and UMIP join forces to host a BBSRC workshop for young academic entrepreneurs

Written by UMIP on . Posted in News

UMIC and UMIP will host a BBSRC–sponsored workshop on the morning of the April 21st at the Core Technology Facility on Grafton Street. The event will focus on informing young academic entrepreneurs of potential careers in start-up businesses and particularly, in the Life Sciences and Environmental business sectors in general. In addition, the organisations are preparing potential academic candidates at the post-graduate stages of their careers to enter the BBSRC-sponsored YES events (, the NWEST regional final is held in Manchester, in November.

We look forward to seeing a large representation of young academics who are interested in finding out more about business related careers and life in start-ups and to hearing more about the YES events as well. It will be an exciting and informative event. It will be an important opportunity for young academics to network with local commercial people from start-ups and various professional services associated with business creation, development and support.

UMIC and UMIP look forward to seeing you at this important event. As we are expecting a large level of interest, we hope that you will register early for the event which will take place over the morning of the 21st April with a full agenda to follow shortly. Please contact Alison ( to book your place.
