INNOVATION MINDSET ACADEMY (IMA) 2022
The 1st edition of the Innovation Mindset Academy (IMA), a new training initiative put together by TBDO, CRG ISA and Training, took place in March 2022 within the framework of the European Training Network Chromdesign, coordinated by CRG's Group Leader Luciano Di Croce.
The IMA scheme was ideated to be highly interactive and activity-based to take PhD students through an entrepreneurial immersion experience while instilling an entrepreneurial mindset, helping students to develop their skills to convert lab-ideas into business ones.
IMA participants worked on their own business ideas for a week while engaging in discussions with entrepreneurs and scientists in business. The topics covered were intellectual property protection and disclosure, value creation, and demanded skill sets from researchers in a business environment.
The IMA 2022 stands as the optimal prelude of the next CRG BioBussines School Edition, to take place in 2023.
