UZH Entrepreneur Fellowship Focus Event

Gain insight into the UZH Entrepreneur Fellowship program


Do you see potential for research in your group to be further developed and transferred as a product or service on the market?

The University of Zurich offers an 18-month-UZH Entrepreneur Fellowship to researchers interested in commercializing research results. Next to funding, the fellows also receive expert advice and hands-on training in the fundamentals of how to start a business. The support is offered for BioTech and MedTech aiming at bringing new therapies, medical devices, analysis tools, software etc. to the market.

Are you curious about this funding program for young researchers aspiring to become entrepreneurs? Join us at the Focus Event, get to know some of the current fellows, and ask all your questions.

The Event is hosted by Prof. Thorsten Buch, who lately, after a career focused on basic science, has been strongly involved in technology transfer activities.
