From 2017-10-12 to 2017-10-12, Germany
Fit for Health 2.0 supports researchers and especially SMEs for a successful participation in Horizon 2020 health-related projects. Fit for Health 2.0 in collaboration with Berlin Partner and the European IPR Helpdesk is organising a full-day training taking place in Berlin on 12th October 2017. The event will be tailored to executive representatives of high-tech and research-intensive SMEs of all health-related sectors, such as pharma, biotech, med-tech, therapeutics, diagnostics, e-health.
The event supports high-potential SMEs to assess and commercialise their groundbreaking innovative ideas for products, services or processes that are ready to face global market competition. It is particularly well suited for SMEs interested or already participating in EU funding schemes, e.g. the Horizon 2020 - SME instrument.

The training will focus on aspects and challenges that executives typically face when developing their technology, products and organisation. They will be introduced to the principles of valuation and negotiation with equity investors in life sciences, followed by a case study in which the valuation of a drug in development and the negotiation of a fair licensing deal will be simulated. Further case studies will also help to understand how to avoid pitfalls and which IP needs to be considered for business planning including “Freedom to Operate”. Moreover, writing and communicating a business plan will be a topic on the agenda.

The registration will open on 1st August 2017 and the training will be restricted to 40 participants.
