Still spaces left on Huddersfield event for enterprising researchers!

Vitae and the Entrepreneurs Education Programme, part of School For Startups (founded by Doug Richard, former Dragon from the Dragon's Den) are running two Enterprising Researcher workshops for postgraduate and staff researchers. 

Two workshops will take place at the University of Leeds (10 March 2014 - NOW FULL) and University of Huddersfield (14 March 2014).

The overarching aim of the workshops is to get you thinking about enterprise in a broad sense and to apply the behaviours associated with being enterprising and self-leadership to your career development.
