Extending innovative scientific ideas into business opportunities

Project lead:  Dr. Neda Mirzadeh, School of Science

This project aims to identify 3-4 scientific ideas (with commercial applications) to be explored over the course of 10 months and evaluated for innovative business opportunities. The projects will involve undergraduate/postgraduate students, early career researchers and possibly senior scientists, and group them with interested parties from the School of Business and other Schools. Each diverse team will be on a mission to drive innovative aspects of the scientific idea and realize the potential of transforming that scientific idea into a business opportunity.
