Course description


Participants will be trained in translating their research topics into concrete applications that can benefit society. This exercise will not only help in preparing future grant applications but can be equally useful as a preparation for job interviews in and outside of academia.

Th course offers a varied programme covering the following topics:

  • Valorisation: what is it  and why is it important?
  • How do I recognise opportunities for valorisation and how do I go about putting these opportunities to good use.
  • How can I present the valorisation potential of my own research.

The course has a hands-on approach, so during the workshop you will practice describing how your research can be put into practice.
