This 3-day hands-on workshop gives researchers the opportunity to access valuable training, expertise in different areas, feedback and networking opportunities, in order to support participants in bringing their research results in the fields of neuroscience, computing and brain-related medicine to market. A set of tools and practical experiences will be made available to researchers so they can experiment with different aspects of their innovative and entrepreneurial ideas. Students will be able to acquire new abilities and skills that enable them to properly understand interlinkages between problem, solution and market fit for the bio-market. Participants will be truly encouraged to translate this workshop experience into actions once back at their workplaces.
