The Deep Tech Innovation Centre aims to inspire every innovator.

The i2i programme is for researchers from any subject area whose research can be applied to science,
technology or engineering, including life sciences and healthcare. The programme is open to life
sciences, med school, psychology, business school, software designers and more.

The next round of online workshops will be held on 19th, 21st, 26th, 28th January 2022.

You will also have the opportunity to explore the impact of your research by talking to potential partners and customers, with support and funding from Warwick Innovations

After the workshops, delegates will validate the impact of their research by identifying and talking to potential collaborators and customers to better assess the opportunity.

Business mentors will help guide the delegates through this process and (where possible) provide introductions to appropriate contacts.

Funds are available to facilitate customer engagement and can usually be spent on travel, subsistence and entry fees to trade fairs. Due to COVID-19 these funds will instead be available for individuals to use to engage with potential customers online, for example entry fees to online trade fairs.

The course offers researchers a taste of entrepreneurship and will help broaden a number of skills
