Especially for research projects and spin-offs, it is indispensable to develop a good strategy right from the start and to communicate it on one’s website. This workshop teaches the basics of marketing with a special focus on web design for research projects and spin-offs. Participants will work on their own ideas, projects, or start-ups and design their own websites.

Neither previous knowledge of computer science nor graphic design is required.

Date: 15 and 16 September 2021, 9.00 am – 5.00 pm

Unfortunately, the event is fully booked. However, you can register yourself on the waiting list. We will contact you in good time if spaces become available.
