The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) and its participating centers are pleased to announce the organization of "From Science to Business", a hands-on workshop with 5-day on-site sessions on entrepreneurship in research, delivered in collaboration with ESADE Business School.

From Science to Business will allow participants to:

  • Get acquainted with the business world and learn how companies create value for society and for themselves.
  • Understand the framework within which companies operate.
  • Understand the venture creation process and the role that science/technology plays in it.
  • Appreciate that venture creation needs scientists and engineers and that entrepreneurship can be an attractive career path.


The program is aimed at BIST researchers (senior researchers, postdoctoral fellows and last year doctoral students as well). This course aims to increase the speed of turning innovation and knowledge into new ventures. The course is designed for groups of approximately 30 people to ensure optimal participation, learning and faculty-to-participant ratio.
