Are you a Sciencepreneur?

We invite doctoral and postdoctoral researchers from all disciplines to learn practical methods to innovate, test, and iterate their ideas! In cooperation with the Academic Staff Development of the University of Konstanz we organize workshops for young researchers with creative and innovative minds. Whether you are working on your PhD and want to discover your entrepreneurial strengths, or you want to improve your leadership skills to make your venture a success – our workshops are an ideal starting point. Discover your skills and the potential of your research!

All workshops are for free and can be credited towards the ASD certificate Leadership, Management, Science Communication and Transfer of Knowledge.

From PhD to Innovator

In this Young Entrepreneurs in Science Special workshop, you will learn methods from the fields of design thinking, storytelling, and innovation management. Further, you will be shown how to apply them to develop start-up ideas from your PhD project, your other specialist expertise, or from your everyday observations.

The workshop is an invitation to experiment and does not require that you already have a start-up idea!

The next workshop will take place in the winter term.

Innovation Toolkit

In this Young Entrepreneurs in Science Special workshop you will learn taking the perspectives of others in user research and how to develop a product or service with a precise fit for a specific target group. In interactive sessions, you will apply the Value Proposition Canvas, learn about analysis tools such as the Problem-Solution-Fit, and transfer what you have learned to your own project.

This workshop builds on the workshop „From PhD to Innovator“. However, both can be attended independently.

Unfortunately, this workshop was cancelled. We will publish an alternative date soon.

Webdesign with WordPress – Build Your Own Website for Research Projects, Spin-Offs or Start-ups

In this workshop, you will design a website for your own ideas, projects, or start-ups. It offers the opportunity to gain insights into the world of web design, to get to know structured design processes, and to create a first prototype for a website. Neither previous knowledge of computer science nor graphic design is required!

Date: 26.-27.09.2022, 8.00 am – 4.00 pm

Unfortunately, the event is fully booked. However, you can register yourself on the waiting list.
