Basics in Research Valorization through Entrepreneurship and Intellectual Property (September 18–20, 2017)


Academic and scientific excellence notwithstanding, scientists and academics are challenged with an increasing demand for transfer, exploitation and commercialization of research results. Hence, enabling young researchers to commercialize their ideas either by licensing or selling them for industrial use – or by starting up an own enterprise – becomes more and more important. The challenges comprise legal issues including intellectual property rights, but also aspects of marketing, visualization, communication and the selling of ideas and research findings.

Target Audience

Doctoral students and junior scientists interested in entrepreneurial thinking and acting.

  • Survey of basic approaches to research valorization
  • Development of entrepreneurial skills


Over the course of three days, participants will be introduced to the basics in research valorization, entrepreneurship and intellectual property. While day one is dedicated to intellectual property rights and the development of ideas as the core of innovation, the workshop continues on the second day with selected aspects of entrepreneurship and science- based enterprise creation. Day three is set to put a focus on basic skills needed for the visualization and presentation of business ideas.
