Our online workshops bring academics together to provide a knowledge exchange opportunity that can create originality and innovation.

Benefits to your organisation:

  • Quick access to the latest cutting-edge research within the topic area of your interest
  • Pathways to solutions explored by experts from a variety of disciplines

How does it work?

 1. Submit your challenges

Submit challenges that you would like to discuss with our researchers. 

Once challenges are submitted, we will find the most relevant academic experts to help find innovative solutions to your challenge. 

 2. Join online workshops

As soon as we find academics who are able to offer their knowledge and expertise to support your challenge, we will organise an online workshop facilitated by our team at Edinburgh Innovations. The virtual workshop will take place at a date and time suitable to all participants.

During the workshop, you will discuss your challenges with experts from the University of Edinburgh and learn how we can help to provide any potential solutions.

  3. Start collaborating

After the initial discussion online, we will identify the next steps. If a particular project is identified, we will assess which available funding streams can support it. We will identify academics and researchers that could work on this project and we will help you submit relevant projects plans to ensure you can access funding quickly.
