International Summer School on Technology Transfer in Life Sciences Dresden 28. August - 1. September 2017 home benefits venue accommodation apply contact Do you wish to bring your science to the market? Do you want experts to show you the way? International Summer School on Technology Transfer in Life Sciences 28th August - 1st September 2017 Dresden, Germany benefits What it is all about The neglected starting point Learn how to identify the innovative potential within your own research. The theory Get to know the options that you have to bring your inventions to the market and generate money with it. Practice! Develop your idea or invention towards a real innovation with the help of experts. It's all about money Gain knowledge on potential funding opportunities. Expert talk Get in touch with successful founders of life science companies and find out about the challenges they faced – and how they solved them. Jump start Focus on your idea. Don't worry about finances. Accommodation, travel and workshop costs are covered for all selected participants. "The perilous road for graduating PhDs" - Audio interview with Karen Patterson, Flinders University, on ABC science show Listen here "I've already participated in a couple of technology transfer programmes in England, but none of them was so intense and practice oriented and analysed the topic so comprehensively." - Sean Song, King's College London, England "The difference between the project presentations at the beginning of the week and at the end was unbelievable. You could clearly see how much all of us had learnt." - Ivan Burkov, University of Barcelona, Spain "The summer school has opened up a completely new perspective for me and influenced my thinking substantially. I also totally fell in love with Dresden. It is a very beautiful city with a charming atmosphere." - Bita Sedaghati, University of Leipzig, Germany programme The schedule day1 Idea and potential identification and evaluation Workshop: Identifying potentials in your own research activities Currently, researchers mainly focus on their ongoing research and potential new research activities in order to publish their results in scientific journals. However, they rarely screen for opportunities to transfer their research results towards the economic market. Therefore, many potential inventions remain unnoticed and left unexploited. During the first day, experts from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel will provide you with an overview on how to identify an invention and how to assess its technological and commercial potential. The module aims at sensitizing you to regularly evaluate the potential of your own research results and provides you with tools to decide whether a research result could be a potential invention. day2 Licensing or Spin-off: The decision making step Workshop: How to apply the decision making step for my invention There are two ways on how to exploit a patent: either it will be licensed and/or sold to external partners, or the patent becomes part of a spin-off. Patent exploitation experts will impart knowledge on how to strategically decide for the right option: does a patent have the potential to become the basis for a spin-off or shall it rather be licensed and/or sold to external partners? The third module will sensitize you not only to identify a potential invention, but also to be aware of the different routes your invention can take towards the market, and which role you play in this process. day3 Protection of Intellectual Property (IP) Inventions need to be protected and there are different ways to do so. Especially in life sciences, the most important option is filing patents. Therefore, the second day provides you with a brief overview on different types of IP, followed by an in depth overview on legal and structural issues of patents, given by an IP lawyer highly experienced in life science patents. This second module focuses on biotech-specific patenting features, esp. highlighting so far uncertain patenting areas in life sciences – and how to cope with that. In terms of tools, you will be introduced to the concept of an invention disclosure. Licensing An experienced patent lawyer will introduce you to the patent exploitation strategy of licensing and provide a broad overview on the different types of agreements, basic license terms and the legal aspects that play an essential role when negotiating with a company. day4 How to start up: Entrepreneurship in Life Sciences Workshop: Business model generation Having received a comprehensive overview on licensing, you will be introduced to the spin-off pathway on how to exploit a patent. Colleagues from dresden?exists, the founder’s initiative of TU Dresden, will provide you with a brief introduction to the business model concept and on how to write a business plan. The workshop allows you to create a business model out of your own invention, and to develop a draft of the respective business plan. Venture capital as a source of money Workshop: "Scientists 2 Industry" Dos and Don'ts when approaching the Life Science industry The fourth day will concentrate on potential private industry as well as venture capital funding sources that allow for the commercialization of an invention. Furthermore, we will introduce the concept of life science incubators that combine venture capital funding with lab and space provision as well as different types of entrepreneurial support and consulting. The subsequent workshop will sensitize you on how to approach industry and provide practical information on how to pitch. day5 Presentation of workshop results - Pitching Workshop: Mini Symposium On the last day, you will get the chance to present your projects developed during the workshops in a mock pitch to a selected group of experts. Their feedback will allow you to further improve your business idea and to decide how to go on after the Summer School. Furthermore, the last day includes a "Mini Symposium" session. It will focus the optimization of technology transfer structures and processes and include international best practices and speakers. venue Medical Faculty at TU Dresden. The Synergetic University. Get connected to the international life science community in Dresden Dresden has become an excellent international research centre. Especially in the field of life sciences (medicine, molecular cell- and developmental biology, stem cell research, genomics, etc.) and engineering (tissue engineering, biomaterials science, chemistry, nanotechnology) Dresden holds outstanding expertise with research institutes and biotechnology companies forming an innovative research community. The Medical Faculty at the Elite University TU Dresden, organizer of the International Summer School on Technology Transfer, is deeply embedded in this broad and interdisciplinary network for biomedical research. Its research groups follow a translational and interdisciplinary approach by cooperating with the nearby Max-Planck-In...
