Experience EMERGE Workshop – Armidale
About this Event
The UNE SMART Region Incubator is hosting a startup workshop designed for postgraduate students and researchers here at UNE. In this session, you will enjoy a lively and safe place to better understand your ideas, and network with other researchers and idea makers to see if you would like to take your idea further along the path to impact.
Called the Experience EMERGE Workshop is a chance to experience what it would take to establish a startup, or work with startups to create impact. You will work with our Innovator in Residence Gary Morgan, where he will help you to understand the impact and commercialisation potential in your research ideas, and share with you frameworks to unpack the opportunities to create new or improved products and services.
Grab the chance to join Experience EMERGE as a taster – you never know where your research could take you.
About the EMERGE Program: As the demand increases for publicly funded research to transform problems, generate innovation and make solutions, we are here to support you to understand the possibilities and processes that connect research outcomes to the generation of impact and commercial opportunity.
