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 prepare participants to:
- Get acquainted with the business world and learn how companies create value for society and for themselves: providing more, better and healthier food, a cleaner, healthier and safer environment, and a better quality of life and wealth.
- Understand the framework within which companies work and how they create value in a competitive environment.
- Get a hands-on approach to the new venture creation process in the workshop session, and the role that science/technology plays in it.
- See that new venture creation needs scientists and engineers, and that entrepreneurship can be an attractive career path.
This course aims to increase the speed of turning innovation and knowledge into new ventures.
The program is aimed at BIST researchers (senior researchers, postdoctoral fellows and last year doctoral students as well).
Researchers from other institutions are also welcome upon request and subject to availability.
The course is designed for groups of approximately 30 people to ensure optimal participation, learning and faculty-to-participant ratio.
