  • Dr Clare Lankester has recently joined Partnership & Regional Engagement at TUoS to act as a conduit into the wider TEAM SY network. Her role is to support TUoS spin-out and start-up Companies with their early business needs and to help them access the South Yorkshire ecosystem. 
  • We have just launched our latest programme, Ideas for Good 2022, open to UoS students and recent graduates. 
    • Over five weeks, a series of workshops will focus on developing solutions that actively solve both global and local challenges. 
    • Expert facilitators will guide teams and individuals through each week of the programme supporting participants to evaluate ideas, validate assumptions, develop skills and connect with a like-minded community in Sheffield and beyond. 
    • The programme will culminate in a pitching competition on 11th May 2022, where participants will present their projects to a panel of judges with the best ideas winning up to £1,000 to develop their solutions further.
    • Our three key themes are:
      • Tech & Digital for Good
      • Sustainability in Materials, Food & Construction
      • Health & Wellbeing
