2021 edition of the StartUp Research offers 20 scholarships

ITQB NOVA and Nova SBE Post-Graduation aims to help researchers envision the value their science can generate. Early bird is open until 30 September

The third edition of StartUp Research, the Post-Graduation developed in partnership between Instituto de Tecnologia Química e Biológica António Xavier (ITQB NOVA) and Nova School of Business & Economics (Nova SBE) to help researchers envision the value their science can generate, will take place on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings from 5 February to 14 May 2021. The first phase of applications, until 30 September 2020, includes a 10% discount on tuition, not applicable for scholarships. The final deadline is 6 December 2020.

The course offers 20 scholarships, supported by ITQB NOVA, the Municipality of Oeiras and Pharmis, which may either partially or fully cover tuition. In 2021, the StartUp Research program will include blended learning, with some classes online and others held at ITQB NOVA or at NOVA SBE.

Aimed at researchers from all areas of life sciences, the Startup Research helps training students, giving them the necessary entrepreneurial skills and the knowledge about the latest market trends to implement business ideas in their respective fields.

This program intends to bring scientists, entrepreneurs, and industry together, and provide all scientists, science managers and executives an advanced scientific degree aimed at managing innovation and businesses. ITQB NOVA will be responsible for the technical content (e.g., innovation in biotech, intellectual property protection, project management, etc.) and Nova SBE will outline the innovation and entrepreneurship side to it.

"Because of the StartUp Research Post-Graduation, I discovered my new long-term mission: work hard enough to turn my project into a reality," says 2020 alumna Lia Correia. “The great environment helps you to enhance your communication skills and gives you the tools to translate science into business language. I believe the future is interdisciplinary”, states 2019 alumna Roberta Zoppi.

Startup Research is a short-term Post-Graduate course, which lasts three months, from February to May. Classes are taught on Fridays (14h – 19h) and Saturdays (9h - 13h). If you wish to learn more, please visit the official page of this innovative post-graduation.
