About the programme

The STEM_Valorise Researcher Training is a 6-week programme which will help you extend the reach of your STEM research beyond academia. The programme will take place in a blended format with some activities arranged online and others in-person.

Through taking part in the programme’s international workshops, seminars and networking, you will learn:

The definition of STEM valorisation and why you should integrate it into your research efforts

How to advance your research through external collaboration

How to think and act like an entrepreneur

How STEM research should be assessed and prioritised

How to scan your environment for assets to support valorisation

Who is this programme for?

Graduate students

conducting STEM research at a higher education institution or are affiliated with one.

*Two pathways are available for participants: (1) if you want to learn about what valorisation is and how it influences STEM research’s value to society, then the awareness pathway may be for you. (2) If you are planning or already have performed your own research, the valorisation pathway will provide more practical and applied support to achieving greater societal value from your research.
