Stakeholder Engagement and Partnership Canvas, Internal Workshop
On Thursday 21st November RISE and UCL presented an internal workshop exploring the interaction between academic research and industry. The second from a series of internal workshops designed to further enhance the Innovation Readiness Capability or RISE’s researchers.
In this workshop, it was stressed that 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 provided attendees with the toolkit and knowledge to start developing their own engagement activities and identify priority organizations to target.
I really liked learning about the Partnership Canvas tool, which helped us sketch out ideas about a potential partnership and guided us through the procedures to make that a reality through RISE’s internal structure. It was really helpful to get feedback on a specific partnership idea for our MRG as well.

It was enjoyable to deliver the training and see how actively all the participants engaged with the training. There is a real enthusiasm to understand how researchers can engage better with industry and external audiences and identify the opportunities and topics to enable this.
