In the ninth episode of this series, we speak with James Smith, currently Research Funding and Development Manager at Coventry University.
James is experienced in developing funding bids and strategies, having worked in higher education and industry in similar roles. James has a passion for sustainability and clean energy, which was ignited when he supported the establishment of the Institute for Global Sustainable Development at the University of Warwick.

In this podcast, James shares valuable insights from his experiences and discusses the synergies between academia, entrepreneurship, and the quest for a cleaner future. We really enjoyed our conversation with James and were sure that you’ll find his insights invaluable.
