Final Report - BIOBOOTCAMP (Bio entrepreneur boot camp: starting life science companies)

Project ID: 37385
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

Imagine that a new treatment for curing leukaemia will never reach the children it could cure, just because the scientific team that discovered it, is keeping it on the bench or at preclinical level, as no pharmaceutical company is interested to commercialise it. And the scientific team is not even able to create a start-up as they don't know how to do it. That is an example describing the gap that sometimes exists between discovery and availability to patient.

BIOBOOTCAMP was a three-day training course offered primarily to researchers where the participants could have an insight into the crafts of the preparation of business plans the elements that are needed for the start-up of a successful biotechnological enterprise. Their final report covers the challenges and achievements of the project.
