Three-day Workshop “Entrepreneurship in Science & Arts”

Organized by the European Reform University Alliance (ERUA)

Target group of the workshop

Early career researchers (PhD students and post-doctoral researchers)


The workshop is aimed at the developing and mentoring PhD students and post-doctoral researchers, from all disciplines, who are interested in Scientific Entrepreneurship. It is open to early career researchers, who are thinking about translating their research into commercial innovation, now or in the future, or be in a start-up, or in a social enterprise, or industry/SME collaboration. It provides opportunities for interaction and facilitates exchange amongst senior and early career researchers.

The workshop will be held in parallel with the activities of the ERUA Research group, the “4th workshop Reform Universities, society and entrepreneurship: Current views and future research agenda”, as well as with the 1st ERUAhAckaThon in the frame of the “Aeiforia” flagship for sustainability and the Re ERUA “Re-Up My skills” initiative for an open dialogue event with regional, national, and European stakeholders for re-skilling and up-skilling.
