    Content:

    The development of more PhD students having to find a career outside the university is still increasing. Therefore considering your future career and how to reach the desired goals is something all PhD students should consider early on in their PhD studies. In order to facilitate this reflection the Doctoral School has created this PhD course that are relevant to all PhD students enrolled at the Doctoral School.

    The course contains information about the development of the PhD study –where is it heading overall and what are the implications for you as a PhD student?
     A presentation from Klaus Ingemann Pedersen who is employed at both Nokia and Aalborg University about the interface between academia-industry and how to implement these in your future career as a young researcher.

    You will work on how to improve your impact and gain experience with creating an effective academic profile through your CV, online presence and a dissemination plan. Just as the course will invite you to reflect on your current and future career plans. There is a possibility for a follow up test on your career profile after the course.

  • 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 3.000 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 four 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 From Research to Business (2023)
      ..

      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.

      A range of follow-up activities is available from AAU Innovation and Open Entrepreneurship. These will be briefly presented and recommended individually during the course.

      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.
      • Knowing about local structures and organizations supporting startups.
      • Understanding options for IPR protection.
