ABOUT THE STEM VALORISE PROJECT

The goal of the STEM Valorise project is to raise the entrepreneurial competences and capabilities of STEM researchers to create social impact through research valorisation; through providing technical universities with means to train their STEM researchers in valorisation & entrepreneurship.

 

 

WHAT WE WILL DISCUSS

 

Europe has taken the path towards stronger connectivity between higher education institutions (HEIs) and their external partners, for joint solutions. This collaboration is key for turning research results & innovation into tangible economic and societal value. Research value creation (valorisation) remains low and there is a need to raise awareness and develop tools that will empower a new generation of entrepreneurial STEM researchers that create real societal impact.

Training on how to develop research valorisation skills and competencies.

Understanding competencies (knowledge, skills & attitudes) for undertaking valorisation activities.

What research valorisation means and entails, specifically in the STEM fields.

Promotion and development of support training structures for STEM valorisation at HEIs.

WHO SHOULD PARTCIPATE?

Incubator and accelerator staff, who support entrepreneurial undertakings at the HEIs.

HEI engagement professionals who are developing systems and processes to support research and knowledge transfer and academic entrepreneurship.

Academics and HEI educators in STEM as well as entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial education domains who are eager to support their students to translate their research results into valuable societal contributions.

Free registration opens soon!
