SPARK Europe training course on Biomedical Innovation and Entrepreneurship

SPARK Europe again offers the training course on Biomedical Innovation and Entrepreneurship for students and postdocs from European SPARK associated institutions. The course takes place online from October 4th to 15th, 2021 and provides an understanding of how translational projects are developed and companies are created, established, and funded. The goal of the course is to enhance the students creative, innovative and entrepreneurial skills.


The SPARK Europe course offers lectures, group work and presentations. During the course, each student group will develop a new project or product, which they will pitch to interested parties. This can potentially lead to the formation of real start-up companies that can arise from this course.

Spaces are limited! if you are interested in participating, please contact Alexander Stumpf before July 11th, 2021 for details including how to apply. The course fee amounts to €450 (excluding VAT). SPARK-BIH can support up to 3 students from SPARK-supported teams.
