At the end of the workshop participants:
- were familiar with the advantages and implications of developing a post- doctoral research programme
- had had the opportunity to share knowledge and experience relating to post- doctoral research careers
- understood Innovation Cell Methodology
- had gained practical experience of the application of Innovation Cell Methodology
- had offered and received practical ideas and information on how to develop a post- doctoral research strategy.
An inclusive and interactive approach was used, following the principles of the innovation cell methodology, this engaged workshop participants to exchange ideas, knowledge and experience. In particular participants were encouraged to share examples from their own experience.
