From Science to Business Course

May 28th, 2019 May 28, 29 and June 4, 2019

Within the Business pillar of the ICFO+ program, we announce the ICFO ESADE: From Science to Business course, a 3 days program that aims to accelerate the transfer of technologies developed in the BIST research institutes to the marketplace. The program, created by ICFO in 2008 is now in its 9th Edition. Since 2016 it has been offered jointly with BIST for participants from all BIST centers.

The program will get researchers acquainted with the business world and provide understanding on how companies and the new venture creation process work. It will also show that new venture creation needs scientists and that entrepreneurship can be an attractive career path for them.

This program is aimed at researchers working in BIST centers (senior researchers, postdoctoral fellows and last year doctoral students). The course is designed for groups of approximately 25 people to ensure optimal participation, learning and faculty-to-participant ratio.
