Life Science
made in Göttingen

With the Life Science Factory initiated by Sartorius, we aim to promote scientific progress in the life sciences and strengthen research and development of innovative technologies with a clear focus on applications. This is why we provide open-space offices, a prototyping dry lab and a wide offer of events revolving around life science entrepreneurship for scientists and research teams who aim to take their initial steps outside of academic institutions.

yes - young entrepreneurs in science (workshop)

October 15, 2019 — October 16, 2019 / 9:00 am — 5:00 pm

How much start-up potential does your PhD/Postdoc have? Develop your business idea!

You are a PhD student or Postdoc and want to take your career into your own hands, but you don’t have a business idea yet? Then this “Young Entrepreneurs in Science”-workshop is for you! Entrepreneurial thinking does not start with a business plan or even a business idea. Rather, our approach is to ask: “What if you had to live off your PhD/Postdoc project?“ Participants will receive insights into their innovative potential and new career and development perspectives. You will get to know state of the art methods like Design Thinking and be encouraged to recognise and contribute your already existing skills and potential to the programme.

This initiative by the Falling Walls foundation, developed in cooperation with partners in the fields of science and economics, communicates entrepreneurial skills and expertise to develop the drive for entrepreneurship amongst young scientists early on. This workshop is organized by the Falling Walls Foundation in cooperation with the University of Göttingen’s start-up support team, the University of Hanover, the University of Clausthal and Sartorius. Participation is free and mandatory for all four days. The workshop will be held either in English or German, depending on the participants.

Location: StartRaum/Life Science Factory & Sartorius Göttingen
