This 2 hour session presented by the School of Education and Social Work at the University of Sussex sets out to provide a space for sharing experiences, challenges and ideas around developing innovation in the social sciences.
Academics often see entrepreneurship and commercialisation of academic activities through developing for external audiences as being more closely aligned to science or creative disciplines. Yet such innovation can also be central to the social sciences, in the form of such activities as training development. Social science academics will share their experience of developing their research and practice expertise for targeted non-academic markets, feeding into opportunity for group discussion around opportunities for individual and collaborative innovation. Key to this is thinking around how innovation can take place in ethical ways that align with social justice agendas.
This hybrid online/in-person session is open to Innovation Network Fellows and University of Sussex colleagues from any disciplinary area.
