Aim and content
This course is free of charge for PhD students at Danish universities (except Copenhagen Business School), and for PhD students at graduate schools in the other Nordic countries. All other participants must pay the course fee.

Anyone can apply for the course, but if you are not a PhD student at a Danish university, you will be placed on the waiting list until enrollment deadline. This also applies to PhD students from Nordic countries. After the enrollment deadline, available seats will be allocated to applicants on the waiting list.

1. Understand and interpret research with an innovative/commercial potential
2. Demonstrate and define how to go from "idea to market"
3. Understand how to use innovation and business tools to develop, prototype and test solutions
4. Identify and evaluate new research targets and gain insight in industrial research
