The CRG BioBusiness School is a highly interactive, activity-driven learning process that takes scientists through a concentrated entrepreneurial immersion experience; aiming to instil an entrepreneurial mindset and to ignite the ability to convert lab-ideas into business ones.
The core of the program takes you through the venture building process in small groups of participants; supported by exchange with entrepreneurs and business experts culminating in a pitch event. This online experience, designed by the CRG Technology Transfer and Training office, with the special collaboration of the PROTrEIN
project, provides valuable resources such as business templates, educational material and a communication channel to capture and maximise the inputs and outputs of the event.
You will benefit from building an entrepreneurial skillset that will give you the capacity and confidence to pinpoint the added commercial value of your research as well as to envision the creation of your own business.
Furthermore, if you decide not to follow the path of entrepreneurship, these competencies are greatly sought after by corporates, NGOs and the public sector – and as such, you will gain an advantage in the job market.
The online format of the program widens the networking opportunities with national and international fellows, allowing you to establish bonds with other participants and invited speakers. Besides work, there will also be fun activities to keep the group stimulated and engaged.
Expectation from participants
The CRG BioBusiness School is a rewarding, exciting and intense program. We expect attendees to be fully engaged throughout the course, which includes 1 to 1,5 hours of homework in the evenings. You will be working in groups and so your commitment will be not only to yourself, but also to your fellow group members.However, we recognise that you continue to have your own responsibilities and deadlines. For that reason, we will be starting at 09h30 every morning and will finish at 16h00. In addition, there will be a 1,5-hour lunch break every day which will allow you to eat, rest (perhaps) and also keep up to date with your other tasks.
