How to create impact out of research? How to turn your research into action? Could I, should I, commercialize my research? Do I have to leave academia, can I ever return? What does science-based entrepreneurship or academic entrepreneurship mean?
These questions among many others related to the area of science to impact are being pondered by many researchers and academics.
Join us at the second From Lab to Market event to discover three different stories from scientists turned entrepreneurs themselves: Reetta Kivelä from Gold&Green, Aki Soudunsaari from Naava and Maija Leino from Useless Company! Exchange thoughts over a cup of coffee on how to create impact from research — or just to network across disciplines and organizations.
16.9., 7.10., 28.10., 25.11.
