Develop your skills

When introducing your idea to society, you may discover that you need to improve certain skills. That is why IXA organises a number of workshops, courses, webinars, seminars and much more. These enable researchers to explore activities that enhance the valorisation of research, develop their proficiency in specific valorisationrelated topics, and gain essential entrepreneurship skills

  • Workshops and courses for researchers on all aspects of valorisation
    E.g., Take your place at the table for the Valorisation webinars where a variety of valorisationrelated topics are discussed. 
  • Workshops and courses for researchers on working effectively with businesses
    E.g., Attend the Interactive Patent Workshops if you want to know more about intellectual property (IP), protecting knowledge with a patent, collaborating in research with companies, and much more. 
  • Custommade workshops for departments or faculties 
  • Workshops, courses and masterclasses in entrepreneurship
    E.g., Listen to entrepreneurs sharing their stories on how they set up their business at the monthly Venturing with talk show.
