This focus group is for University of Oxford ECRs, DPhils and Post-Doctoral Researchers. Please register using a University of Oxford email address.

Calling all University of Oxford early career researchers (DPhil or Postdoc) – IDEA (Increasing Diversity in Enterprising Activities) is exploring barriers to innovation & engagement in Oxford and needs your input!  Join us on 2 or 8 March to share your ideas, opinions and stories.

We are looking to speak with researchers about barriers to accessing and engaging with enterprising activities, including applying for entrepreneurial and innovation funding. We are interested in identifying barriers to these activities, and we are particularly interested in hearing from underrepresented groups. We welcome her, him, they – everyone is welcome to sign up for these focus groups.

We are aiming to understand barriers within the University and the within the UK innovation and funding landscape. We are running a series of Focus Group Discussions, each of which will be about 60 minutes, to discuss these issues.

If you would like further information or cannot make the dates listed below, please contact the IDEA Programme:

Focus groups will be online, but we will be flexible regarding the platform, as required.

The interviews and focus groups on the IDEA project are being administered by Enterprising Oxford. The interviews and focus groups will be conducted in accordance with Enterprising Oxford’s Privacy Notice and the Oxford University Data Management Guideline.
