Cambridge dons give ‘impact from research’ masterclass

Professor Chris Lowe

Cambridge ‘dontrepreneurs’ Nigel Slater and Chris Lowe share their experiences of commercialising university science & technology when they kickstart a new series of Enterprise Tuesday for Cambridge Judge Business School on Tuesday night (February 2).

Enterprise Tuesday is a series of free evening lectures and networking sessions managed and delivered by the Cambridge Judge Business School Entrepreneurship Centre.

Professor Lowe (pictured above) is one of the most celebrated biotechnology entrepreneurs on the planet. He won the accolade of ‘Most Entrepreneurial Scientist of the UK’ Award: UKSEC (2006) and has helped found and spin out a number of life science enterprises.

Professor Slater is the university’s Pro-Vice-Chancellor focused on enterprise and regional affairs.

The duo will explain how the benefits of turning research into business ventures can heavily outweigh any downside. Their startpoint is that the long and winding road to commercialisation can be a perilous route to take – even more so when you are working on deep science. So why should you bother? 

Professors Slater and Lowe will guide budding entrepreneurs through what they have learnt from creating companies and why ‘impact from research’ is now on the UK government agenda. For anyone wanting to attend their talk – ‘From Deep Science to Enterprise: Making an Impact’ – the event runs from 6pm-9pm on  Tuesday, February 2 at Lecture Theatre 0, the Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street, Cambridge.

An exciting series of lectures has been lined up by Judge – including an eagerly-awaited session from a team at ARM, the world-leading Cambridge-based superchip designer, on February 9. More details on all the talks in the new series can be found in the timetable at https://www.jbs.cam.ac.uk/entrepreneurship/programmes/enterprise-tuesday/timetable/
