Share this post
❓What are the key elements to take into account when bringing your research findings closer to the market, and what are the strategies (and pitfalls) to do so?
💪 Many researchers develop and study certain technologies, but few succeed in creating real-life solutions which could be brought to market and ultimately be used in the field.
🎯 Based on real-life examples, attendees will be offered concrete tips and tricks which could help them in their careers while also bridging the gap between science and practice.
👩🎓 Some of the learning outcomes of this Masterlcass include:
- Identify the key elements to take into account when considering the active translation of research findings into actual solutions which could be used in the field
- Learning how to become a more impactful researcher without becoming an entrepreneur: options & key success factors
- Becoming aware of the key pitfalls to avoid when collaborating with people from other disciplines or sectors
- Defining the best next steps in your career taking professional and personal aspects into account
- Knowing where to start best, given your specific case (technology type, sport, targeted outcome, maturity level, people involved, etc.
🤷♀️ Who is this for? Mainly researchers in the sports science and engineering space, but it could also be relevant for R&D or innovation managers from a startup or scale-up, or people working in sports teams or federations who are involved in early-stage research and innovation projects.
🤔 People who participate in this session could prepare the following in order to get the most out of it: create a short document including various aspects of your project(s) as e.g.:
- the reasons you started the project
- the projects’ key topic and related outcomes
- the advantages these could provide for a certain target group
- your and your organizations future ambitions with the project
- the things you’d like to learn from participating in the session
👀 Participants will be able to participate in rather reactive or proactive manner. Enough time for Q&A will be provided and a follow-up call is also possible (and included).
