get READY – for the industry

Many scientists have the perception that their skills and expertise are mainly relevant for a career within the academic world and less valuable for the job market in the private sector. At the same time, the idea of working for a private firm with all its possibilities and benefits attracts many scientists.

The seminar ‘get READY - for the industry’ aims at demonstrating common innovation practices in the private sector and looks at the role of a modern researcher in this system. In particular, scientists get insights into:

  • How do firms evaluate innovations?
  • What are the key factors for successful project management in the industry?
  • How do researchers apply open innovation practices?

For the purpose of illustration, first-hand information on the innovation practice of possible future employers, e.g. Euroimmun, Dräger, Philips, and Minimax, will be provided.

Participants will also explore the application of different 'open innovation' practices conducting an online simulation exercise of the Harvard Business School.

The training has been developed by the Institute of Entrepreneurship and Business Development at the University of Luebeck in cooperation with GFA Consulting Group GmbH, and will be conducted jointly.
