The Innovation Launchpad Network’s first ever Induction Day took place on Wednesday 19th July 2023 and kick-started the Researcher in Residence community.
Successful applicants were invited to a venue in Birmingham to meet fellow academics, the Innovation Launchpad management team and Catapult representatives in person. The researchers were challenged to create a PechaKucha-style presentation which summarised their research proposal, offering a unique insight into these projects.
The afternoon saw a ‘community rules’ session, followed by a panel discussion from previous Researchers in Residence Professor Nick Warrior and Professor Li Ran, as well as Rebecca Wilkes from Energy Systems Catapult and Rebecca Quinn from Satellite Applications Catapult.
Outputs from the event, including a special podcast episode, will be released in the coming days. For now, there is a gallery of images from the event below.
Calling all researchers! Tranche 3 of the Researchers in Residence scheme will be open to Expressions of Interest on 5th October
