Royal Academy of Engineering: Enterprise Hub open day

The Royal Academy of Engineering's Enterprise Hub is running a drop in open day for anyone interested in its programmes on Wednesday 22 May, 1.00pm-4.30pm. The Hub runs several schemes for engineering and technology leaders and entrepreneurs to support them in commercialising their innovation and scaling up.

This event is open to all interested applicants, including representatives from university technology transfer offices and research institutes.

This is a great opportunity:

  • to learn in more detail about the programmes of the Enterprise Hub
  • to meet the Enterprise Hub team who can answer any questions
  • to visit the Taylor Centre, a dedicated touch-down workspace for Hub members.


Launchpad - Each year the Hub helps one budding engineering entrepreneur aged 18 to 25 to start a business based on their engineering innovation.

Enterprise Fellowships - Enterprise Fellowships support creative and entrepreneurial engineers who have an exceptional innovation that they plan to develop further. The Hub equips them with the confidence, skills, experience and networks needed to bring innovations to market. Enterprise Fellowships are open to:

  • researchers wishing to spinout a company from a university or research institute
  • recent graduates wishing to create a company
  • international PhD students already based in the UK wishing to spinout or startup here.

SME Leaders Programme - This six-month programme supports individuals in executive roles in high-growth engineering and technology SMEs to develop their leadership skills. If you have plans to scale-up your enterprise and want guidance on navigating the challenges and growing pains, then this programme is for you.
