Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology (IMET) – Ratcliffe Environmental Entrepreneur Fellowship (REEF)

The REEF Program was launched to help young scientists cultivate the leadership and business skills necessary to bring their research into commercial markets and to provide students with an enhanced appreciation of the potential business implications of their research.  Short courses offered to the Ratcliffe Fellows included:  creativity, intellectual property development and management, science & strategic communications, stage gate decision making, and creating a business plan. During the 2017 session the program involved a cohort of eight Master’s and Doctoral students.
