Back by popular demand, the Lab2Market Entrepreneurship Academy is being offered again this summer in two segments. This five-day intensive workshop integrates lectures, exercises, and team projects for researchers at all levels looking to gain information on how to commercialize their research. It’s a great opportunity for researchers to find out more about creating a commercial outlet for their research-moving it from lab to market. Applicants must register by July 31 and commit to attending all of the five days. To see topics covered this year, please visit the course agenda here.
