ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN NEUROSCIENCE
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS, TRANSLATION & EXPLOITATION OF RESEARCH
17-19 July 2017
Villa Toskana, Leimen (Heidelberg), Germany
This "hackathon" style workshop completed and complemented the online course on Intellectual Property Rights, translation and exploitation of research. Students worked in small groups around joint applied research ideas in Neuroscience that the students offered and conceived by themselves. The participants studied 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 presented their ideas to industry and academy experts. The workshop was a hands on unique experience of diving into the entrepreneurial world, learning how to advance the science into the next step...
This workshop was open to the whole student community and early post-docs upon application. Applications from young female investigators were highly encouraged.
Seven travel grants were available upon request (European students only - residence).
