The Academia-Industry Training Programme is organized for Swiss, Brazilian and Indian scientists working on promising research.
Beyond Samba and Bollywood: India and Brazil have more to offer. The applications are now open for this exciting program in Rio and Bangalore. The key objective is to expose researchers (Master, PhD, Postdocs) with applicable projects to market opportunities and induce an entrepreneurial spirit and relevant skills for them to take their research from the labs to the market place. Furthermore, the programs seeks to incentivize international collaboration and thinking “beyond borders”.
Indeed, this program gives a strong introduction to entrepreneurship featuring workshops in business plan writing, market entry scenarios, funding strategy and pitching classes as well as focusing on networking events to maximize contact between Swiss, Brazilian and Indian players.
