During this workshop, we will identify your intellectual assets, stakeholders and ways to societal impact.

11:30 am – 13.30 pm, at Science Park Jönköping, “En trappa ner”
We will focus on creativity and the structured idea generation – finding needs and gaps in the society where your knowledge could make a difference.
During this workshop, we will look at structured approaches to a generation of solutions and/or new research questions based on trends and challenges in our surroundings.
- What are the current or future needs and challenges in the society?

Seminar no 3: Starting a business/Creating impact
January 17, 2019, 11:30 am – 13.30 pm, at Science Park Jönköping, “En trappa ner”
A short background on business/dissemination models, presentation/pitching, etc. followed by a workshop around these aspects.
During this workshop, we will look into topics like:
- Business models
We will also talk about whether to create outreach/impact, disseminate research or commercialize a research output. Either way, strategies and models are a necessity as well as how to present the core value in a concise, concrete manner that someone from other fields can embrace.
