*Aim*

/Overall aim:/ The overall aim of the course is to train professionals
to obtain the knowledge and skills enabling them to commercialise
scientific ideas or techniques.

/Primary endpoint:/ The primary endpoint of the program is to equip
participants with skills to evaluate possibilities for product
development and to decide for commercialisation.

 


    Programme

The programme consists of 8 one-day modules with a monthly frequency.
The guiding principle of the programme is that participants acquire
knowledge and skills through functioning as a member of a
multi-disciplinary team. Every module is structured in a way that
general knowledge on the topic is gained through team work and homework
assignments.

 

The initial 3 modules are meant to introduce participants to the
programme and to train fundamental skills (e.g. communication, problem
solving, basic economics, value of money, management styles, decision
process, outline of a business plan).

In the remaining 5 modules the team acquires skills by generating a
business plan using an actual idea or technique of one of the
participants. Separate modules deal with specific parts of the business
plan, e.g. patents, marketing, pharmaceutical information and finances.

 

*The teams are supported by professionals, both from university setting,
the world of commerce and banking. *

 

*Language*: English.
