Full course description
This workshop deals with the theory and practice of valorisation. Valorisation is defined as ‘’The process of value creation from knowledge, by making it applicable and available for economic or societal utilisation, and by translating it in the form of new business, products, services, or processes’’. The main item in this workshop is to discover how economic value can be created form neurohealth research. What products, services, and tools with practical applicability and commercial spinoff can be derived from this work? Can we create patents, licenses, startups and/or research collaborations based on new findings? If so, how can this be envisaged? Who could be potential partners and how do we approach them to find appropriate developers, manfacturers, and market parties? What are critical success factors to arrive at a favourable outcome? All of these matters will be dealt with in an interactive setting with students.
Students will be able to understand:
- valorisation theory and practice;
- the creation of tangible output from neurohealth research in the form of products, services and/or tools and the role patents, licenses, startups and collaborations can play to arrive at that stage.
