Business Plan Writing Course

Date: M36-M41

Organized by: UWE

Goal: To give the ESRs experience in writing business and exploitation plans, and to prepare for an industrial career. Each researcher will create a plan relevant to his/her research topic and one of the participating companies. The students will be accommodated by the industrial partners.

Activities: Hands-on training in preparing business and exploitation plans, including market reviews and budgeting frameworks. Introductory lectures will be given at Workshop 3, followed by individual work, brainstorming and peer reviewing in local groups. Each ESR will present their results at Workshop 4. The business oriented partners (UMI, CDI, URQ) will take major responsibility for quality assurance, and feedback before, along and after the course.
