The NERC-funded Valuing Nature Programme Business Impact School aimed to support development of a research community with a broader understanding of how Valuing Nature research can be translated into private sector decision-making and innovation.
The three-day Business Impact School drew speakers from the Valuing Nature Programme Business Interest Group and other relevant businesses. A workshop session explored the business need for evidence and how to communicate with businesses. The School provided fully-funded places for 25 early stage researchers who each gave presentations focused on the business impact of their current research activities. The final day included the real world examples of business decision making with corporate natural capital accounting at Windsor Great Park and nature-based educational services at Iver.
