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!
The MPLS Enterprise Fellows represent and liaise with MPLS research staff (research only contract) to provide an evidence base for the enterprise training provision and support of fellow researchers.
Enterprising Women aims to encourage, inspire and support the participation of female STEM researchers (those who identify as women or non-binary) in innovation and entrepreneurship, through a variety of events and programmes.
Be inspired by students and researchers who have taken part in a wide variety of enterprise events, courses and experiences.
Many of the events and activities we run are produced in collaboration with our departments, with student-led groups such as Innovation Forum and Science Innovation Union, and colleagues in the Oxford Foundry and the Careers Service.
MPLS is home to dozens of enterprising researchers. Read here about some of their innovations.
MPLS offers opportunities for any of our students, researchers and staff to become more informed and active in the Oxford Entrepreneurial ecosystem through a series of Enterprise courses and events.
