From PhD to Innovator

Course Type: Online-Workshop
Target Group: Doctoral researchers, Postdoctoral researchers
In cooperation with the Start-up Centre of the University of Konstanz (Kilometer1)
In this YES-workshop (Young Entrepreneurs in Science), you will learn methods from the fields of design thinking, storytelling and innovation management and apply them to develop start-up ideas from your PhD project, your other specialist expertise or from your everyday observations.
The workshop is an invitation to experiment and does not require that you already have a start-up idea. It offers a platform to develop innovative ideas and concepts in a protected setting with experienced innovation coaches and an interdisciplinary group of participants, to present those ideas and to receive valuable feedback. In addition, the workshop supports you in planning your next steps, especially with regard to the question of who you want to bring into the team so that the right personalities with the relevant competences help the common cause to succeed.
The YES-workshop "From PhD to Innovator" takes place in cooperation with the University of Konstanz's start-up support. It can be credited towards the ASD certificate "Leadership, Management, Transfer of Knowledge" in modules III or IV (16 units).
