Other learning opportunities
There are many other opportunities to build on your skills during your time at Manchester.
Lectures and seminar series
You are welcome to attend open lecture and seminar series held within Schools and Divisions. See a full list of Faculty events.
These give you a chance to network with researchers outside your direct field of study and you may make some useful contacts that can help you with an aspect of your project.
In certain Schools and Divisions, you may have the opportunity to attend certain lectures being held for master’s students. You should speak to your PGR Trainer to see if this is available in your area.
Biotechnology YES Competition
Developed to raise awareness of the commercialisation within the biosciences, the Biotechnology Young Entrepreneurs Scheme (Biotechnology YES) is especially for early career researchers. It is organised by the Haydn Green Institution for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at The University of Nottingham, the BBSRC, and the MRC.
Participants are asked to develop a business plan for a hypothetical bioscience start-up company and prepare an oral presentation.
