YES 18 Competition

18/05/2018 - 11/12/2018

Calling ESRs – Develop your enterprise skills; creative thinking and communication skills and become work ready.

Take part in #YES18 this autumn and spend three days immersed in developing enterprise skills; thinking creatively to produce innovative solutions to major challenges; discovering how to communicate research with impact; and becoming work ready.

YES is designed to develop business awareness and an understanding of entrepreneurship in UK postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers. This goal is achieved through a competition in which those participating prepare a business plan for a hypothetical company.

YES will be taking place this autumn. There are themed workshops covering the full spectrum of academic disciplines from the medical and biological sciences to astronomy, physics, chemistry and engineering, social sciences, energy and environmental sciences and the arts and humanities.

YES is organised jointly by The University of Nottingham’s Haydn Green Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship(HGI), the  Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the Medical Research Council (MRC).

Application opens: 18 May 2018
