First HBP Curriculum Workshop Series First HBP Curriculum Workshop Series


17-19 July 2017
Villa Toskana, Leimen (Heidelberg), Germany


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 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...

This workshop is open to the whole student community and early post-docs upon application. Applications from young female investigators are highly encouraged.

Seven travel grants will be available upon request (European students only - residence).
