Research Commercialisation

This module aims to develop an understanding of intellectual property in light of its potential for commercialisation, and a working knowledge of typical commercialisation processes.  By becoming more familiar with these concepts participants should have more success in managing collaborations, identifying opportunities and engaging with industry.


This module has been developed to help participants understand what entrepreneurship is. The study of entrepreneurship is multidisciplinary so the course will assist students in understanding not only the nature of entrepreneurship, who entrepreneurs are, how they take advantage of an opportunity, but also why it can be studied and why it's important to researchers.

Public Policy

This module aims to stimulate inquiry into the processes involved with the identification, development, implementation and analyses of public policy, and to gain an in-depth understanding of the role that governments play in driving the policy process from problem identification to implementation and evaluation.
