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.
