FOCUS GROUP: Is Entrepreneurship and Enterprise at Cambridge Working for you?
New


Description

We are running a series of focus groups to gain a better understanding of the entrepreneurship and enterprise landscape at Cambridge for STEMM postgraduates. We welcome everyone to come along and share their experiences and thoughts about this subject with us. Whether you have previously gained entrepreneurship and enterprise experience or thought this is an area to build on as part of your post graduate training, your contribution to these sessions would be most valuable.

This session will be held online via zoom. Joining instructions will be sent to participants two days before the scheduled focus group.

Target audience

STEMM postgraduate researchers

Prerequisites

A link to a short and anonymous pre-session questionnaire will be sent to participants to complete, two days before the scheduled focus group.

Objectives

This focus group will help Researcher Development and the Careers Service improve training we offer to researchers. Your role will involve sharing your experiences and wishes for training. Participation is voluntary and you may withdraw at any point.

Anything you say during the session is confidential: notes made to improve our services will only include anonymous responses.

We plan to record the session to make it easier to capture all the points that are made. The recording will only be seen by the three people who are involved in delivering the focus groups. If you would like to take part but prefer not to be recorded, please let us know by email (Dr Sam Byers; sb2251@cam.ac.uk)
