From Monday 29 January, the Imperial Innovations team will be holding regular drop-in sessions at the Hammersmith and South Kensington Campuses:
- Hammersmith: every Thursday at 12:00 – 14:00, Wolfson Education Centre Café
- South Kensington: every Wednesday at 11:30 – 13:30, SAF Café
Innovation surgeries are informal drop-in sessions with members of Imperial Innovations’ technology transfer team. You can use them to discuss ideas, find out information about the support on offer, or get answers to specific questions related to translational funding or intellectual property protection. They can be a good way to make first contact if you have an invention you wish to discuss, or simply a way to set up a more formal discussion in future.
