Join the PHD Innovation Day at FAU!
Are you doing your doctorate at an EELISA University? Is your research topic too good to go after it’s finished? It might be fit to start an start-up adventure! If you are not sure yet about what to do with your research, this is your chance!
With this workshop PhD students will have the chance to get the nudging, support and feedback they need to bring their research to the next level, and explore the start-up potential of PhD/ research topics and while connecting with fellow students from all over Europe.
The aim of this workshop wants to help PhDs to consider a way towards entrepreneurship. This will be achieved by creating and innovating through the “Lego Serious Play“ model, where participants will present their research topic in a visual way to their peers and use it to ideate around the research topic.
In this session, attendants will be able to listen to the journey of two post-docs who transformed their PhD to startup (Acalta and Dulog); participate on an ideation workshop by Zollhof, the head of start-up, and listen to FAU’s inventor consultant and patent manager talk about the dos and don’ts regarding publications, patents and IP.
