From Research to Market

The event will be held in english.

Founding a startup after graduation – whether Master, PhD or even during your Postdoc time – can be a great opportunity to bring your research into the society as well as to independently work in the field of your interest.
But you could also give others the opportunity to use your research results by licencing. Research transfer can have many facettes. And for Profit research is not as evil as it sounds.

Two of the main questions are usually asked: How do I start and how do I finance my startup?

Max Planck Innovation and the Saarland University Startup Center will not only answer these two questions but also give you insights about the possibilities of research transfer.

Join our Event on November 10, 2022 at 09.00h. Max Planck Institute for Software Systems, Campus Saarbrücken, Building E1 5.
