Meeting new pressures on researchers
For researchers aligning with new policy goals can be daunting, counter-cultural and an unwelcome distraction. To secure funding it’s clear that researchers need to:
- develop a comprehensive understanding and compelling evidence of how their research positively impacts business and wider society.
- be abreast of the innovation challenges, such as those arising from the UK Industrial Strategy or UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
- deepen their understanding of challenges by engaging with business and other stakeholders to discover how their research can deliver impact.
- find and collaborate with the businesses, (both large blue chips and SMEs), that can benefit from the impact of their research.
- clearly articulate the value and impact that their research can contribute to meeting these challenges.
- construct multi-disciplinary teams in collaboration with industry to translate their research ideas into novel applied innovations that address the identified challenges.
InCEPT™ helps researchers overcome these obstacles, by validating
the value of their research with “challenge owners” from any sector
HOW InCEPT™ ENABLES MORE EFFECTIVE COLLABORATIONS BETWEEN RESEARCHERS AND INDUSTRY’
InCEPT™ enables researchers to scale their reach and connect with multiple industry collaborators within a single engagement programme, by delivering:
- A collaborative environment that supports open and effective engagement between multi-disciplinary participants
- Greater synergies by combining a broader range of subject matter expertise and industry perspectives on the challenge areas
- Earlier and stronger connections between science capabilities and end-user value and impact, a vital step to commercialising IP from any research.
- Enhanced reputation and standing of their academic institution, by demonstrating both the industrial value and wider impacts.
The result is that the application of InCEPT™ builds more effective collaborations that enable smarter innovation faster by delivering valuable outputs quickly.
