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 email@example.com. 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 DurhamThe internet is a rich resource for researchers but its vast size means that even the most proficient user can struggle to find relevant information for academic work. This session will focus on the advacned features of Google Scholar and discuss its relative strengths and weaknesses as an alternative to library databases. It will also look at using other sources to find academic and grey literature on the web by exploring a range of search engines and making the most of advanced internet searching.

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 YorkThe University of York has offered an intensive residential course for postgraduates who are about to begin teaching for the first time at university level in 2009 and 2010. Our provision for postgraduates who teach has always been extensive, but many participants suggested that as it was spread throughout the year, there were consistently learning outcomes in our courses that they wished they had known before beginning teaching. We have addressed this concern by creating a 3 day course in which we address many aspects of teaching and learning, as well as giving participants an opportunity to create a syllabus and teach a class in a safe and supportive environment. The residential allows participants to take time out of their busy research schedules exclusively to consider issues around teaching and learning, and to share practice with both the facilitators and each other prior to entering a classroom for the first time.

Institution: University of YorkThe York Award: Researchers is a certificate of the University of York which recognises and rewards those PhD students who undertake an active programme of personal development over the course of their registration. It operates alongside degree programmes and aims to capture the impact of all aspects of university life in terms of the skills and experiences that they will find beneficial in their future life and work. The process of applying for the York Award: Researchers will allow postgraduate researchers to evaluate their unique set of skills and experiences, and ensure that they are able to communicate the value of their research degree and transferrable skills to an academic and a lay audience.
