StartUp Research, a new graduate programme to foster entrepreneurship skills in young scientists is launched today, as a partnership between a research institute (ITQB NOVA) and a School of Business and Economics (Nova SBE). 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.
The official launch of the StartUp Research programme will take place at ITQB NOVA in Oeiras.
