ESI's 6th edition project day as for focus Technology Transfer and is entitled: "Innovation, Knowledge Transfer and usage of research infrastructures"

The project day aims at introducing general terms related to knowledge and technology transfer, intellectual property, and exploitation of research infrastructures as well as present the extended impact of Science.

"The day will consist in 1h30 of presentations (instructions, models, examples), followed by a 6h hands-on session working with a team of about 10 people on a specific technology case.
The list of technology cases will be made available on this website before the 1st of May such that the school participants can consult them and choose the one they believe to have more potential to make it successfully into the market.
At the end of the day each team will give a presentation (max 10 slides) with a business idea on how to make commercial use of scientific data.,"
