Helping researchers turn great research into great business; that's the aim of the Research Councils' Business Plan Competition.
The Business Plan Competition encourages applications from across the whole spectrum of academic research within the remit of the seven Research Councils: from the arts and biosciences, to environmental physical and social sciences to technology. Any active researcher based in a UK Higher Education Institution (HEI) or Public Sector Research Establishment (PSRE) which is eligible to hold Research Council grants can apply. Only Masters Students and staff from Technology Transfer Offices or similar groups are ineligible.
The competition was open to researchers based in UK Higher Education Institutions (HEI's) or Public Sector Research Establishments (PSRE) that are eligible to hold Research Council grants from across the whole spectrum of academic research within the remit of the seven Research Councils.
