Institution: University of YorkThe Department of Chemistry at the University of York developed a suite of training in the area of Enterprise, KT and impact in 2009/ 2010. These courses were developed and delivered within the Green Chemistry team led by Professor James Clark with input from a range of academics and industrial partners. The following text is largely from the promotional material supplied by Sue Couling firstname.lastname@example.org. The courses offered included: 1. Intellectual Property, Business Opportunities And The Impact Of Environmental Legislation 'Increasingly demanding environmental legislation can enable green chemists to develop technologies and new business opportunities' 2. Commercialisation of Science 'Following on from Intellectual Property, students will learn about technology transfer, licensing, and setting up a spin out company to market their greener product' 3. Public Awareness of Science and Sustainability 'Training and practical experience of designing, planning and taking part in a range of public facing events'

Institution: University of YorkDeveloping research funding applications is a multi-stage process including; refining the question and methods, finding collaborators, identifying appropriate funding sources, knowing what makes a successful application and who to get advice from, costing the bid and writing the application form. This project seeks to address some of these stages. The specific objectives are: 1. To create a series of short video clips/ audio recordings featuring staff from Department of Health Sciences, covering: • Features of successful applications. These will spotlight on senior staff who are panel members for some of the major health research funding bodies. • Staff experiences of applying for external funding. These will contain reflections of staff who have applied for research funding, both successful and unsuccessful. These resources will be stored on the Health Sciences Staff Intranet (on a web page dedicated to the project) with links from both research and teaching related pages. An online survey will give people who access the resource an opportunity to feedback their views on its usefulness. 2. To establish a Learning Set of early to mid career research staff to facilitate the development of skills in writing research funding applications. Early to mid career researchers will present research ideas to the learning set for discussion or commenting on applications in progress. The group would meet once a month and maintain an email list of members that could be contacted for advice when needed. The project team will be supported by two senior members of staff (Karen Bloor and Karen Spilsbury) and has been approved by Head of Department (Professor Christine Godfrey) and Chair of Departmental Research Committee (Professor Nicky Cullum).

Institution: University of York"Starting Your PhD" is a two-hour workshop offered by the Graduate Training Unit to new researchers in each department as a part of thier departmental induction programme. In addition to giving students an opportunity to consider the nature of the PhD, and the issues that they are likely to face over the course of their project, it gives them a first-hand experience of the kinds of training that the GTU offer. This makes it clear to students that skills training is a central part of the research experience, and they are able to experience for themselves the painlessness and usefulness of the kinds of training we do.
