12th December is the new deadling for applications to StartUp Research, a new graduate program to foster entrepreneurship skills in young scientists. Born as a partnership between a research institute (ITQB NOVA) and a School of Business and Economics (NOVA SBE), both from Universidade Nova de Lisboa. For 3 months, scientists will learn how to turn knowledge and ideas into value by learning with researchers, entrepreneurs and companies. This new course wants to bring economic and business skills as part of the scientific training of a PhD. Classes will start on January 12th.

"We want to promote the emergence of companies that can transfer the knowledge created in our laboratories to products and services of interest to the market and society. We think there is nobody better equipped for this than the scientists themselves, and for this we will give them the best training in Innovation in partnership with NOVA SBE "says Cláudio M. Soares, ITQB NOVA dean.

”We have been training top researchers for 25 years, who continue their careers in Portugal and abroad. We know how to train scientists and now we want them to know how to recognize business opportunities with the knowledge they generate. We want to train scientists who can also create companies and jobs, while giving the knowledge back to society in the form of products that can be useful."
