Vrije Universiteit Brussel training on innovation and entrepreneurship
Europe aims at a leading role in the global race for innovation. The EU is pursuing closer collaboration between scientists, entrepreneurs and civil society to support efforts in achieving this goal. As the future of innovation leadership of the EU relies on knowledge and technology transfer, postdoctoral researchers represent considerable potential in triggering economic and social effects. The EU-funded IMPACT project, promoted by the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, will establish a postdoctoral research and training programme encouraging impact development and entrepreneurship. The project will provide 20 postdoctoral researchers with the necessary knowledge and technology transfer skills to assume leading positions in academia, business and civil society.
