The Barcelona Institute of Science and Technology (BIST) and its participating centers are pleased to announce the organization of "From Science to Business", a 4-day intensive workshop 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.
