Manchester Institute of Innovation Research

Professional Development - Short courses

Building on a long-standing programme of research and teaching activities, the Institute runs a series of short courses designed to draw together academic, government and commercial participants. Some courses operate on a regular basis, while others are designed specifically to the needs of a particular user.

Our regular courses all have a global reputation, involving a series of intensive lectures and interactive sessions with senior Manchester scholars and invited experts. They are in the following areas:

The aim of the courses is to equip participants with an understanding of theoretical backgrounds and major concepts, necessary methodological skills, and some practical insights into the design and implementation of policy.

The courses attract practitioners from all over the world, and provide participants with valuable networking benefits. Courses are modular, offering the option of one- or two-day intensive sessions, or can be more extensive programmes run over five days.

The modular structure means the courses can be designed to fit individual needs and can be held either in Manchester or where required by clients.

Tailored courses

The Institute can also create tailored courses on demand.

Please contact us for more information on any of our courses.
