About this event

From entrepreneur giants to miniscule particles accelerating in a laboratory, JCU’s Inspiration on Tap has it all. Examine various approaches to entrepreneurship and discover what is needed to keep a start-up viable long-term with Dr Marcus Powe, from the College of Business, Law and Governance. Then turn your attention to the innovative plasma-wakefield particle accelerator and discover the potential applications across physics, medicine and electronics as we hear from Dr Gregory Boyle, from the College of Science and Engineering.

Creativity + Innovation = Choice - Aka Entrepreneurship

A menu, a recipe, or an equation? What is the best approach to entrepreneurship? You and your team know how to get the product or service ready for the turbulence of the marketplace. You (the entrepreneur) seem to know how much of each ingredient is needed to enter, survive, and thrive. It seems so simple, what could possibly go wrong? Explore the key components required to ensure your start-up can go the distance.

Plasma wakefield acceleration - the particle accelerator on a benchtop

High-energy particles are very useful things if you can get them. These tiny objects underpin work within medical sciences, the electronics industry and vital physics research. The emerging technology of plasma-wakefield acceleration promises to make particle-accelerators 1000 times smaller, cheaper and more widely available. Discover the wide-ranging benefits and applications of this innovative invention.
