Cantabria will host the National Conference of Entrepreneurial Scientists on 6 and 7 October. The meeting will bring together researchers, investors and entrepreneurs and facilitate the creation of new science-based private initiatives.
During the two days there will be workshops, success stories of scientists, round tables and activities that facilitate the creation of synergies between researchers, entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs and social agents.
To this end, issues such as the transfer of scientific knowledge to consolidated companies or the creation of new private initiatives managed by researchers will be discussed.
During the conference, experts will also address other issues such as new models for financing innovation or patent management. To this will be added discussions about trends in demand for scientific entrepreneurship in areas such as the blue economy and health.
The meeting is open to anyone. To attend, you must register at www.entrepreneurscientifics.org. In this portal you can also check the news of the program of activities and meet the new speakers of the conference.
Science and Transfer Basics
Some of the conference participants are the first European to be selected for the MIT Business Forum Global Board of Directors, Paloma Cabello, as well as relevant figures from the entrepreneurship ecosystem such as the co-founder of the MIT Entrepreneurship Forum Spain, Clara Pombo.
The meeting’s coordinator, Carlos Cusculuela, recalls the importance of being able to hold the conference again “after two complex years in which science and its transmission to society were found to be essential”. He also appreciated the organization of the conference with the support of CISE, a national reference entity in scientific entrepreneurship.
Similarly, the Executive Director of the Santander International Center for Entrepreneurship, Manuel Redondo, highlighted the center’s interest in bringing this meeting to Cantabria and generating opportunities in the region. As he said, “This conference complements the actions we are developing from CISE to support scientific entrepreneurship, a sector that generates productive knowledge that drives economic and social growth. We are confident that it will be the root of impactful projects in the near future.”
