Got a great idea? Then it will take careful planning of all the details to bring it into reality. Planning the practicalities and routes to an end 'product' (publications, further funding, marketable items) are a necessary step. Often this planning process brings opportunities and threats to light. This interactive course will use the popular business model canvas combined with your research project as a starting point to develop your ideas further.

This course will cover:

• Elements of The Lean /Business Model Canvas
• Research project summaries
• Using an adapted research canvas
• Business plan basics
• The equity fingerprint

By the end of this session participants will have:

• Explored the elements of the Lean/ Business Model Canvas with their peers
• Applied the canvas to their research
• Received peer feedback on their canvas
• Studied the steps of a formal business plan
