Learn how you can protect and commercialise your research

The next meeting of the Kent Enterprise and Impact Network (KEIN) will take place on Thursday, 21 June from 12.00–14.00 in Room 115 in the Drill Hall Library, Medway Campus.

In this session, we will look at ‘Enterprising next steps: protecting and commercialising your research’. You will hear from Dr Antonis Alexandridis, Lecturer in Finance from Kent Business School, who will be sharing his experiences of developing software that is currently being rolled out across a selection of banking organisations.

There will also be talks from Dr Marcus Goodall, KIE’s Technology Transfer Manager, on protecting and commercialising your research as well as a representative from KIE’s Hub for Innovation and Enterprise about their dedicated support for start-up development for staff and graduates.

If you have any enterprise ideas or ideas prompted by the presentations, this is also an opportunity to share these and hear about how the University can provide support

All University staff are welcome to attend.
