Welcome to From Research to Business (2018)


Description:

Topic, background and motivation for the course:

Today, the job market for PhD candidates is not only in public science. Most PhD candidates find employment outside the university, but too few convert their technical skills and brilliant ideas to prosperous businesses. The purpose of this course is to give PhD students an impression of what it takes to become an independent technological entrepreneur with a successful business.

The course takes a practical and kaleidoscopic approach and does not aim to cover its topics in depth but rather introduce important concepts that are present in most entrepreneurial endeavors in technology.

 

Learning objectives:

Knowing the general terminology of entrepreneurship.

Experience different ways to view businesses and their lifecycles.

Knowing the legal structures supporting businesses in Denmark.

Having considered the purpose and contents of a business plan.

Knowing financing options and understanding their pros and cons.

Knowing different types of investors, their motives and expectations.

Knowing the basics of immaterial property rights.

Having considered different marketing approaches and their links with the business model.

Understanding the interplay with employees in startup companies, including incentives.

Knowing about local structures and organizations supporting startups.

Understanding options for IPR protection.

Knowing the concept of exit and the strategies behind.

Important information concerning PhD courses We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.

Welcome to Intellectual Property Rights


Description: The aim of this course is to give the students an understanding of the importance of the use of patents when working within the area of science. In both public and private research and development, the strategic use of patents is becoming important knowledge. The course will have a practical approach and therefore the lecturers will primarily be professional patent agents and other professionals, who work with patents on a professional basis.

The course will guide the students through the process of using patents as a strategic tool when the protecting of IPR is needed.
