FLTM x Health Talks – Innovations from Health & Life Sciences  

Stories about science-based entrepreneurship 

Join us at the From Lab to Market event to discover three different stories, around all living things! This time we’re hearing developments from researchers in health and life sciences, turning research into innovations to solve real life problems!

How to create impact out of research? How to turn your research into action? Could I, should I, commercialize my research? Do I have to leave academia, can I ever return? What does science-based entrepreneurship or academic entrepreneurship mean?

These questions among many others related to the area of research to impact are being pondered by many researchers and academics. Now you’ll have a chance to exchange thoughts over a cup of coffee on how to create impact from research and network across disciplines and organizations!
