Vitae Lens on the researcher framework – Enterprise and Intrapreneurship

As part of the enterprise agenda 'coming of age' Vitae, supported by Research Councils UK, have extended their thinking into enterprise and intrapreneurship. Based on their Researcher Development Framework and through dialogue with partners such as EEUK, a 'lens' has been developed to focus on the knowledge, behaviours and attributes that researchers develop. It illustrates how these can be acquired through, or used in, enterprise activities. 

"With increasing international competition, economic challenges, social change and the growing pressures of a complex and uncertain world, unlocking the enterprising abilities of researchers is vital to maximise the benefits gained from excellent research. The Researcher Development Framework demonstrates to researchers and higher education institutions how that potential can be unlocked."


Vitae are keen to elicit informed views, so a consultation on the enterprise lens runs until Friday 13 January, with a planned launch at the Vitae Policy Forum on Monday 23 April.


Details about this lens and other associated researcher lenses, which include leadership, intrapreneurship and teaching are available at:  You are invited to respond to the consultation via this link.
