Stakeholder engagement and Partnership Canvas, Internal Workshop

Thursday 21st November, Julia House

RISE and UCL will present an internal workshop exploring the interaction between academic research and industry.

For a truly collaborative approach to research, enabling applied study that can lead to socio-economic impact, industrial and external interactions must occur throughout the life-cycle of research. This workshop will provide attendees with the toolkit and knowledge to start developing their own engagement activities and identify priority organisations to target.
