Entrepreneurship in Neuroscience: Intellectual Property Rights, Translation and Exploitation of Research

Leimen, Germany

July 17, 2017 – July 19, 2017

This 'hackathon' style workshop completes and complements the online course on 'Intellectual Property Rights, Translation and Exploitation of Research'.

Students will work in small groups around joint applied research ideas in neuroscience that the students will offer and conceive by themselves. The participants will study how to advance their ideas from the lab to the market, understand the needs, the target population, patentability options, and how to build a business model. Finally, they will present their ideas to industry and academy experts. The workshop is a hands-on unique experience of diving into the entrepreneurial world, learning how to advance the science into the next step...

The workshop is open to the whole student community and early post-docs on application. Applications from young female researchers are highly encouraged.

Application deadline: 26 June 2017
