The Surrey Researcher-Entrepreneurs series celebrates this journey from discovery to innovation and highlights the enterprising spirit of our researchers.  The first event of this series will focus on research translation, with talks from University of Surrey doctoral alumni who have taken their doctoral/postdoctoral research and turned it into an enterprise.  We will also be joined by the Innovate UK South East and London Regional Manager.  The evening will bring together  people from different business and industry backgrounds with new enthusiastic researchers who share a common curiosity and desire to drive future innovation.
