Enterprise is applying creative ideas and innovations to practical situations.
Improving your enterprise skills and your ability to identify and develop opportunities (as well as enhancing the impact of your work) will benefit you whether you pursue a career in academia or decide to move into business or a corporation.
MPLS Enterprise offers you ways to develop your enterprise skills by combining a progressive series of half day or 2-4 day workshops with a variety of seminars, networking events and activities supporting you to participate in national and international bootcamps and competitions.
The three pillars of Enterprise are Passion, Enthusiasm and Confidence, all to be widely found in the research community, so you have a great start!
