This Ph.D. course is a one-day event, aiming focusing on technology-based entrepreneurship and introduce different perspectives on innovation, entrepreneurship, business development and strategy. Throughout the day there will be short lectures from both researchers and technology driven companies, and a panel discussion, taking up the participating Ph.D.’s questions on the area of technology-based entrepreneurship. This course allows for networking with peers interested in technology-based entrepreneurship coming from various backgrounds, institutions, disciplines, and countries.
Please, note that the spirit of the Ph.D. course is to be opened to any projects whatever its stage, providing the PhD student submits a short bio, a statement about Ph.D. thesis and questions for the panel discussion.
