PIER is pleased to announce the upcoming Workshop “From PhD to Innovator” organized by the Young Entrepreneurs in Science program (YES) in cooperation with PIER and Nexperia on 6 & 7 July 2021 (via Zoom).

The workshop addresses interested PhD students and postdocs of all disciplines and invites them to learn how to turn a PhD into a startup idea, meet real-life innovators and train a pitch story in front of the camera.

In addition, participants have the chance to discover hidden potential together with other high-caliber researchers, led by professional innovation coaches. Participation grants them a personalized certificate and exclusive access to the YES online network for scientists.

On day 1, the participants discover what it means to be an entrepreneur, explore their entrepreneurial strengths and meet role models.

On day 2, the participants test their own prototype in front of a critical audience and learn how to convince people of their idea. They will meet an innovator from Nexperia to gain insights into the corporate world.
