Life Science Solutions - from Research to Business - Aalborg

Time

25.09.2019 kl. 12.30 - 15.00

Description

The purpose of the event is to inspire PhD. students, Post Docs and faculty staff into commercialising ideas from research. Commercialising is not necessarily a matter of creating new start-ups, but also includes implementing new processes in e.g. the public sector.

A researcher does not necessarily have to create a new start-up, but might collaborate with students or external actors and together make it real.

This event includes short inspirational talks from different researchers who have been able to find practical applications of ideas derived from research. The participants of the event have an opportunity to explore the different pathways of entrepreneurship, interact with those that have experiences as well as meet the supporting staff at AAU who are ready to assist in such endeavours.

AAU hosts different events, workshops and activities, where participants can explore opportunities in entrepreneurship.
