Business Impact School

 

Last year I attended the Business Impact School (BIS), held at the impressive Willis Tower in London. The BIS is organized by the NERC Valuing Nature Programme and every year they fund 25 early career researchers to attend a three day workshop with speakers from the business and scientific world. These workshops aim to create a scientific community with deep understanding of how biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services and natural capital can translate into industry and private sector decision-making. 

If you are an early career researcher wanting to improve your knowledge on linking natural capital with the business world, this workshop is perfect (try to apply for next one!). One of the most interesting topics addressed last year was how to effectively communicate science to the business world. The organization was great and I met a lot of brilliant young researchers there, all from very different scientific backgrounds.

They made some videos from the event. Here I post one that I'm speaking about my research and the workshop itself.
