Veterinary professionals are being invited to register for a series of free-to-attend interactive workshops on ‘turning ideas into innovation’.
Organised by the RCVS ViVet innovation initiative, the workshops will focus on idea testing and validation, with teams learning how to use innovative processes to take an existing idea and turn it into a finished, marketable product.
Workshop one will look at how to find a target audience, workshop two will explore how to successfully test an idea, and finally, workshop three will explain how to roll out an idea after the testing stage.
Participants will have access to a virtual collaboration platform, workshop tools and innovation templates to use after the sessions have finished.
“I’m really pleased that RCVS is continuing to champion innovation in the veterinary profession by offering these free workshops with innovation experts,” commented Dr Chris Tufnell, RCVS Innovation Lead. “I encourage all veterinary surgeons and veterinary nurses with an idea that they want to develop to apply to take part in the workshops.
“Testing the properties and functionality of new products, services, technologies, or processes is a vital component of nearly any innovation. Learning from the interaction of the tests and the target user or system can uncover mistakes or raise questions that have not been previously considered making innovation safer whilst maximising the positive real-world impact.”
There are spaces for five teams (group sizes can be between three to five people) and participants must commit to attending all three sessions. For more information and to sign up, visit vivetworkshop.eventbrite.co.uk
