REALIZE THE POTENTIAL OF YOUR RESEARCH
In close coorporation with the project Open Entrepreneurship, the Technology Transfer Office offers guidance to researchers, who are interested in turning their research into business – either by being a part of the process themselves or by passing on the idea to others.
We have a wide range of offers that we adjust to suit your needs as a researcher.
WHY TURN YOUR RESEARCH INTO A BUSINESS?
- Less than 5% of PhDs find careers in science - the rest pursue careers elsewhere. Why not base your future career on your research ideas?
- Your research ideas may become businesses that can contribute to the utilization of science for the benefit of society.
- You acquire commercial skills essential to your own startup. You can use these skills for innovation and business development in a future job.
HOW TO TURN YOUR IDEA INTO A BUSINESS?
It is important to us that you decide how much time and effort you would like to put in the process of commercializing your research ideas. We will be there to guide you throughout the process.
IF YOU WANT TO START YOUR OWN BUSINESS
If you want to start your own business our experienced business developers are available to you, in order to help you develop a commercial company out of your idea in the pace you find suitable. We also offer different courses and workshops where you can learn more and relate the topics to your specific idea.
IF YOU WANT OTHERS TO BE A PART OF YOUR IDEA
If you want others to be a part of your idea, SEA can connect you with entrepreneurial students that can work on qualifying the aspects of your idea that you have limited time and knowledge to look into. For example, you can get students to help you gather more knowledge about the business part of your research. This might result in a team of students creating a startup based on your idea with you as supporting expert.
We can also connect you with companies or mentors that can contribute to your idea.
