About the course
In introducing this new summer school Bioinnovation Institute, in collaboration with CBS Executive, is taking yet another initiative to increase the understanding of innovation and commercialisation among life science researchers.
The summer school will provide a comprehensive and systematic overview of the most common aspects of commercialisation assessments and planning of Biotechnological Innovations. The course will cover BioIndustrials, HealthTech and Therapeutics.
The course is focused on making assessments and decisions about commercialisation of science innovations, potential products and technologies and drafting a science-based business model. The programme will include cases from the pharma and medical industries and industrial sustainability business.
The course covers a broad set of topics including the innovation ecosystem, translation of technology, assessment of unmet needs, idea generation and evaluation, target product profile and minimal viable product, market and industry analysis, strategic value chain design, open and closed innovation, business models and confidentiality considerations in relation to patents.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
After the course, the participant should have skills and competencies that enables him/her to meet the following learning outcomes:
- Understand the overall commercialisation process of science innovation
- Understand technology features important for commercialisation
- Understand basics of unmet needs, applications, markets and competitor analysis
- Explain how to develop a strong business model for science innovation
- Be a strong dialogue partner to professionals in the science commercialisation space such as technology transfer professionals, patent attorneys and investors
Use acquired skills in planning for a commercialisation process for new science innovations. These skills include knowledge about when to work in closed and open innovation settings and knowledge about when to seek professional advice for more specific commercialisation activities such as patenting and negotiation.
Capable of applying different commercialisation models for different types of science innovations
Moreover, the Summer School provides an excellent network opportunity for like-minded researchers. We include ample time for discussions and socialising.
