“Innovation is the process of generating value by satisfying an unmet need, employing problem (re)definition, (tech)knowledge, and creativity“
Innovation is critical to improve people lives’ and societal development. In the case of Life Sciences, this may take the form of new or improved medicines, more efficient and sustainable energy resources, or new technological solutions to protect our environment and safeguard our citizens.
An interdisciplinary approach to innovation has long been recognized as an essential factor in translation of knowledge into effective products or services. However, there are still critical communication gaps between the scientific community and commercial actors.
The StartUp Research Program is an international and truly interdisciplinary post-Graduation brought together by scientists and entrepreneurs from a recognized scientific research institution, ITQB NOVA, one of the most modern and best-preforming European business schools – NOVA SBE, and the municipality of Oeiras – Oeiras Valley.
The aim of the Program is to help closing the communication gap between scientists and business stakeholders by providing researchers with the social awareness and business skills, required to actively promote the translation of their technologies into innovative amenities.
