Technology Transfer Management: Funded PhD Scholarship: Models of Commercialisation through Open Innovation
Start date: October 2018
Swansea University School of Management I-Lab Research Centre invites applications for funded PhD study in Models of Commercialisation through Open Innovation. The research will be embedded within the AgorIP initiative based in I-Lab, supporting technology transfer from Universities, NHS Bodies and other organisations.
Swansea i-Lab (Innovation Lab) is based within the School of Management, and is comprised of a collection of centres, themes, groups and individuals examining innovation in the broadest sense.
The Centre looks to develop a greater understanding of innovation, its management, and its influence on consumers, employees, citizens, organisations, markets and society. The work of i-Lab adopts both qualitative and quantitative perspectives, and may be categorised to reflect members’ interests at societal, organisational, and individual (citizen/consumer) levels.
Research within i-Lab is conducted in a variety of contexts, being viewed through a lens of innovation development, adoption, diffusion, sustainability and impact. This approach allows for internal projects, both within i-Lab and across the School of Management and broader University, and collaboration with external partners.
Candidates should have at least an upper second class (2.1) honours degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. Business Management) and a master’s degree with a minimum of merit.
The scholarship covers the full cost of UK/EU tuition fees, an annual stipend of £14,296 and other research expenses.
