During the OPATHY winter school selected ESRs were interviewed by Westerdijk Communication officer Karin Schagen and asked about the potential applications of their results in the business sector.
17 Jan 2019
The third OPATHY winter school took place from 16th till 18th of January at QVQ and Westerdijk premises in Utrecht, Netherlands. Beside presentations comprising amongst others the topics Working at a company after your studies From science to value: identification and evaluation of new results, projects and ideas How can a company be taken over (IPA deal)? How can a company taken over a small company? Budapest treaty and Nagoya protocol. ESRs also received practical training in identifying valorisation potentials of their research projects.
