Knowledge Transfer offices are increasingly asked to be involved in creating student enterprise programmes, organising events, competitions, co-curricular courses and providing live case studies that can give students experience of commercialising technologies. These programmes can be a distraction, especially as there may not be much IP involved (and even where there is, we may not own it). However, they can also be fun, generate income and enhance our profile within our institution and outside networks. Besides which, we may not have much choice (or want anyone else to do it).
Finally, on the basis that we generally have neither the experience nor bandwidth to run programmes singlehandedly, we look at ways in which we can engage with external experts: instructors and ‘been-there-and-done-it’ entrepreneurs.
Who should attend?
This course brings together those who have ‘student enterprise’ in their portfolio or would like to have it. We cover some fundamentals of co-curricular course design, introduce some common tools, methodologies & frameworks (taken from the entrepreneurship toolbox). We also take you through the design of events, competitions, challenges, hackathons, their purpose and how they are run and judged.
I learned more in the training course for 3 days than I did the last 3 months at my job. The lectures were informative & interesting.

Organisation and speakers were great, so enthusiastic about their work and very good at transferring their knowledge!

I learned a lot with this course but I have the feeling that I will learn more during my profession, during the daily world and cases.
