Programme details

ARC Discover is the first stage of the ARC Pathway and consists of two virtual workshops that allow you to explore different impact pathways, including commercialisation. You don’t need to have a specific idea yet in order to join and you don’t need to commit to research commercialisation at this stage.

After the two sessions, you will have a clearer sense of different impact options, how to sustain and scale your impact, the audiences involved and what success could look like. You will also be in an excellent position to apply to ARC Launch, the next stage of the ARC Pathway. 

A list of upcoming cohorts can be found below. The workshops run year-round and are led by Dr Dave Jarman, Associate Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Bristol.

Session 1: Discovering Research Impact
In this short session, we will explore how your research can be developed for both impact and career progression. With examples of best practice, practical advice and general guidance, we hope to offer a useful starting point for any researcher.

Session 2: Discovering Your Audience
In this practical workshop, we will explore potential audiences for your research and think about how impact and value can be created and sustained for the benefit of all involved.
