AIT program is an intensive week in Rio de Janeiro for Swiss and Brazilian scientists. Participants will attend a broad range of workshops and classes – from learning how to write a business plan, to pitching in front of investors -, as well as visit key carioca institutions in the entrepreneurial and health sectors.
The AIT is an initiative by EPFL Leading House and swissnex Brazil, and will consist of two phases: a first training camp in Brazil (next week); and a second training camp in Switzerland (April 2015). The key objective is to expose researchers with applicable projects to market opportunities and induce an entrepreneurial spirit and relevant skills for them to take their research from the labs to the market place. Furthermore, the programs seeks to incentivize international collaboration and thinking “beyond borders”.
If you are interested in Entrepreneurship and/or Health and would like to meet our promising scientists and our partners join us on our beautiful terrace on Tuesday 11/11/2014!
