A four-day summer school of talks, workshops, and socials on turning scientific innovation into societal impact through entrepreneurship.

The aim of this summer school is to address the following questions by sharing knowledge, experiences, and pitfalls about how to transform scientific advances into societal impact through entrepreneurship:

  • How can science be directly valuable for society and scale from lab to market?
  • How to get and choose the right team, investors, advisors, and legal setup?
  • What are common pitfalls in this process, and how to avoid them?

The program of this summer school is tailored to provide the participants with a framework to develop the societal impact of scientific advances.

  • First, participants present a scientific innovation and form co-founding teams. 
    Then, putting the school its lectures, workshops, and socials into practice, teams shape their science-based business. 
  • Finally, participants pitch their work to a jury, receive feedback, and compete for a prize.

PhD students from any institute worldwide are eligible.
