We translate new scientific knowledge into benefits for health and value for society
Our research has the potential to improve people’s lives
Head of the “Cellular and Systems Neurobiology” Group
For CRG Community & Inventors
Research activities often lead to discoveries and inventions, and to the development of new tools and materials that may benefit society. TBDO helps CRG scientists realize the potential of their cutting-edge research, promoting the transition of their discoveries and ideas from the lab into real-life benefits.
CRG offers a variety of cutting-edge avenues for collaboration. TBDO is committed to working with industry partners and investors for the progression of CRG research into benefits for society. Our team facilitates this translation by fostering relationships that bridge the gap between early stage technologies and commercialization.
CRG is a globally recognized leader in knowledge creation. TBDO nurtures this fertile environment by providing its community with the knowledge, support and networking opportunities needed to develop an entrepreneurial mindset to make social impact.
To get acquainted with the business world, and to show how companies create value for society and for themselves: providing more, better and healthier food, a cleaner and safer environment, a higher quality of life, etc.
For the first time, we celebrate the Entrepreneurship Week at CRG, a time to meet and discuss with innovators and the entrepreneurship community who dream big and inspire others to bring their ideas to life driving socio-economic growth and welfare.
