Following course

From Science to Society - 15 & 16 October

The workshop will be followed by a short course “from science to society” (starting during the workshop followed by two full course days at 15 and 16 October) for master and PhD students and post-docs (from the Harvest and BioSolar Cells programs and elsewhere), focused on how to extrapolate science to the ‘big picture’. Using information gathered at the workshop as example, relationships with essential societal issues (agronomy, agriculture, environmental issues, energy) are explored and used to sensitise the researchers to the entrepreneurial state of mind (e.g., to design projects). The students will conclude this course by writing a business plan that will be evaluated by experts.
