Saiba quem são os cientistas empreendedores na próxima turma do programa AIT, que está em sua sexta edição

O programa Academia-Industry Training (AIT) é uma oportunidade única para pesquisadores e empreendedores e é realizado pela swissnex Brazil, em colaboração com a Leading House para a América Latina (Universidade de St.Gallen), o Conselho Nacional de Desenvolvimento Científico e Tecnológico (CNPq) e o Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia, Inovações e Comunicações (MCTIC).

O AIT é um programa que visa auxiliar pesquisadores-empreendedores da Suíça e do Brasil no desenvolvimento de seus projetos e estudos para o mercado e a indústria. O Training Camp oferece oportunidades para os candidatos traçarem estratégias concretas através de workshops de plano de negócios, acesso ao mercado, técnicas de financiamento e aulas de pitching, bem como proporcionar conhecimento das possibilidades do mercado brasileiro e suíço.  O programa consiste em uma semana de treinamento no Brasil (novembro de 2019) e outra na Suíça (abril de 2020), com atividades de imersão nos ambientes de inovação e empreendedorismo de ambos os países.
