October, 22nd – Physics/ Materials: From 14:00 to 18:30.

October, 29th – Mechanics/ Electronics/ Computer: From 15:00 to 19:30.


Valorization: key elements: Its main objective will be to introduce the basis of technology valorization as a way to bridge the gap between the “academia” and the market (industry). There will be activities regarding the process to select a target market and to determine a tentative price for a technology.

Technology market positioning: Its main objective will be to learn how to position a technology and its possible evolution (how to look for a market niche).

Customer segmentation/Value added proposition: Its main objective will be to define how to determine the value that a company receives from a technology: the value equation and its variables.

Business plan: key elements: Its main objective will be to get familiar with the “business model canvas” (as a tool to outline the business behind any product or service) and the “pitching technique” (to build the value proposition of a product / service).


The seminars are designed for professors, researchers and PhD students. The event is free, but reservations are required as seating is limited.
