Entrepreneurship is a key element to drive innovation. Next to demonstrating scientific excellence, young academics with an entrepreneurial attitude can often contribute directly to more societal relevance and economic impact based on their research. In this way it can be seen as an addition to your personal career development in academia. But also for those who do not want to stay in academia, entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial skills can support in acquiring new positions or even setting up one’s own business. This workshop focusses on whether participants have entrepreneurial skills, if they can be developed and whether the participant has the entrepreneurial drive. Accordingly the workshop looks at the different manifestations of intra/entrepreneurship in academia, private companies or in an start-up context. Finally we will progress to opportunity recognition and the art of business modelling, where we also use your own research as building material for creating opportunities.
