About the Event
This "hackathon" style workshop is a hands-on intensive experience complementing the theoretical aspects of the online course on Intellectual Property Rights, Translation and Exploitation of Research. Students will work in small multi-disciplinary teams to assemble joint applied research proposals in the wide range of fields in brain science. Experienced entrepreneurs, top executives at the interface between academia and industry and researchers from academia will present, mentor and advise on the translational aspects of the offered projects including how to advance their proposal from the lab to market, understand the problems and accordingly defining the needs in the chosen field, choosing or identifying the target population, patentability options and how to build a business model. Finally, they will present their proposals to industry and academy experts. The workshop is a unique experience of diving into the entrepreneurial world, learning how to incorporate innovation and entrepreneurship mindset and concepts into day-to-day research work and beyond.
