In this workshop we will go through the entire valorisation process; from the starting point to the further development of the idea, the organisation around the valorisation process, the legal aspects and identifying your network.

Why should you put your precious time and energy into media appearances? How do you attract attention from journalists? And what are the secrets of giving a good interview? Appearances in the media can boost, but also damage your academic career. This makes a well-considered media strategy a must have for every scientist. This interactive session will introduce you to the world of mass media. You will learn how to formulate your personal media strategy and how to apply this to pro-actively use media appearances for your purposes. More information and registration

Generating ideas is not too difficult. To make your idea more concrete is usually more complicated. Which steps are to be taken? In this interactive workshop we show different models to develop your idea into a concrete business plan: What are the benefits? Which problem will you solve for whom? And how do you organise your valorisation activities? More information and registration
