NovaUCD 2007 Campus Company Development Programme - Seeking Applications

NovaUCD is currently seeking applications for the NovaUCD 2007 Campus Company Development Programme (CCDP) which commences in March. The aim of the CCDP is to assist academic and research entrepreneurs in the establishment and development of knowledge-intensive enterprises to commercialise the output of their research and other innovative ideas.

The CCDP assists participants in defining and developing their innovative ideas, in building multi-disciplinary teams and in preparing and implementing detailed business plans.

The NovaUCD CCDP is a nine-month, part-time enterprise support initiative designed to suit the timetable of busy researchers and academics. It comprises a mix of practical training and consultancy support including 10 half-day workshops, one-to-one advice and consultancy meetings, and a series of networking events. On completion of the CCDP participants will have developed an investor-ready business plan and presentation along with a strategy for its implementation.

The CCDP culminates in an awards evening, held each November during which each project which has completed the Programme is presented with a Certificate and an external judging panel declares an overall winner.
