Entrepreneurship for Scientists


24. November 2021

In this interactive workshop at the University of Saarland we will explore your entrepreneurial potential. You will reflect on whether entrepreneurship is for you as an alternative path to academia or industry. We will give you insights about how the innovation process works and teach you basics in business development. The Kontaktstelle für Wissens- and Technologietransfer (KWT) of the UdS supports and motivates scientists to dive deeper into the topic of entrepreneurship since scientists are natural innovators and have the potential and skill to create their career path more flexibly.
