#1 From researcher to innovator – what should I think about?

An introduction to key aspects of creating impact from academic results or knowledge, how you move forward with a project and how to prevent common pitfalls.

At this hands-on one hour seminar we will guide you through common questions that researchers with an academic invention usually need to address early on in the process. These include:

  • What are the different ways to get your academic results into practical use?
  • Rights vs responsibility: What does the professors´ privilege mean in practice?
  • CDA, MTA and NDA: What agreements are there and when should they be used?
  • Building a team: When and why?
  • Publications vs patent applications. What rules apply and what do you need to think about before you publish your findings?

When: September 12th, 2019, 11.30-12.30

Where: Biomedicum B0317

For whom: students, employees and researchers at KI
