The call for applications for the 6th International Summer School on Technology Transfer in Life Sciences in Dresden is only open until 30th June.
Application can be submitted on: www.summerschool-dresden.de
The summer school will take place in Dresden from 17th September – 21st September 2018 with the kind support of external experts on technology transfer.
The programme is practice-oriented and allows participants to develop their own potential research ideas and technologies towards commercialisation. During one week they will gain knowledge on technology transfer from experts in the fields of technology evaluation, patenting, licensing, and spin-off development. To complement the programme, they will also be trained in how to pitch in front of potential investors, and be sensitized on important pitfalls when approaching the industry. The summer school will close with a mock pitch, in which all projects developed during the week will be presented in front of an expert jury.
All complete applications submitted until the deadline will be taken into consideration by the selection committee. Participants will be chosen based on their motivation and background. A positive attitude towards technology transfer is a key requirement and ideally, applicants have already identified a potential project within their field of research. Please note that due to funding regulations, the summer school addresses only PhD students, postdocs, and group leaders.
Participation fees do not apply and accommodation will be available free of charge for participants! The summer school is part of TU Dresden’s Institutional Strategy, funded by the Excellence Initiative of the German Federal and State Governments.
