IPR, translation and exploitation of research IPR, translation and exploitation of research

Knowing how to incorporate innovation and entrepreneurial mindset and concepts into day-to-day research work can be very beneficial and rewarding; however, it is very challenging specifically for students coming from disciplines such as computer science, engineering, life science or medicine (a non-MBA background). The current course will help building personal leadership skills for early-stage researchers and group leaders from the neuroscience field by inspiring them to look for better and smarter solutions, to think outside the box and consider end-products when it comes to their present and future research. Especially at early stages of the academic career, students can benefit from learning from the experience of innovators and entrepreneurs, through their failures and successes, and gain some practical tools and advice. Additionally, the course presents the basic concepts of intellectual property and how research can be exploited and translated into products.
