“Enterprising Oxford” has been officially launched! This will provide a gateway for students and researchers to learn the basics of enterprise, from impact, to intellectual property, to setting up a business or social venture, and all the things in-between. You can find out how enterprising skills could be relevant to you and your career and development, with inspiring case studies, events and training from across the Oxford community.
This online resource, developed by the Mathematical, Physical and Life Science division and the Entrepreneurship and Skoll Centres at the Said Business School, will provide answers to common questions including:
— What does it mean to be enterprising?
— Why should someone focussed on a career in research and academia be interested?
— What is ‘impact’ and how is it related to enterprise?
— How do scientific ideas get to market?
— Are there any events or training courses that can help me?
— What about social and cultural enterprises?
The website will keep a focus on upcoming events and local resources, and will have dedicated pages for FAQ’s and advice on the steps to beginning your Enterprising journey. There is also a newsletter providing a round-up of the website’s key news and views.
