This Enterprise Exchange event explored how University enterprise education can build on current best practice to meet the distinct needs of Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs) and Early Career Researchers (ECRs). There were various sub themes running throughout the day: pedagogy, proven practice and engagement approaches. This was an active day with the focus on discussion, led by key insights from leaders in different aspects of PGR/ECR enterprise education. There were plenty of ‘take aways’ including practical approaches to apply back at base and printed case studies to take home.
In the afternoon a ‘World Café’ style session (with chocolate!) enabled delegates to contribute their own experiences in amongst current, active PGR students who have developed their enterprising behaviour for the benefit of their research, supportive supervisors who encourage their students to attend development opportunities, business development managers from Research and Enterprise Services, employers who recruit PhD grads and early career researchers who have applied their enterprise skills in their current role.
Speakers and facilitators include
- Jenny Brady, Enterprise Educator and Adviser for PGRs / ECRs at Newcastle University
- Eunice Lawton, Researcher Development Manager (Engineering), University of Sheffield
- Simon Brown, independent consultant and adviser including the ICURe programme
- Dr Gail De Blaquiere, instigator of ACTION for Impact suite of support for PGRs at Newcastle University
