The program offers powerful learning modules focused on design thinking, understanding the customer, pricing, market access, and more. Participants get exposed to industry experts and positions while building a solid professional network and enhancing innovation mindset, including curiosity, openness, ambition to achieve things. Gained competencies are essential both in academia and industry settings."
Vast majority of educational institutions focus on their core purpose: basic research and education. However, career development goes beyond the pursuit of “original” knowledge. Young researchers need to build competencies of future transformers, ultimately boost their employability, competitiveness and translate their own research into key values for society.
The aim is to ensure that young researchers develop a broad set of competencies of future transformers creating key values for citizens such as innovative health solutions. This will be achieved through trainings, activities and mentoring sessions conducted by specialists, representatives of the academy and industry.
