Find out about the transferable skills that can help academic scientists in the business world, and how some entrepreneurs have roles that straddle both academia and industry.
This is the final episode in our five-session science communication series. Previous episodes looked at elevator pitches, how to publish academic papers, how to excell at your interview, and learning from setbacks.
But today we are doing things a little differently and looking at the transfer of skills between the business and academic worlds. We are taking a deep dive at different case portfolios to answer the following questions:
What is it about graduate school and the things you learn there that equip you for entrepreneurship and a commercial career?
What can one bring to academia, from life and business and entrepreneurship?
How would it work if you decide to return to academia after launching a startup, or even to have a more portfolio career that straddles both academia, and business?
Now academia is a difficult career at the best of times, and so is running a business. How can the challenging task be overcome to do both of these things simultaneously?
This session is coorganised with our partners from the DAAD - German Academic Exchange Service.
The webinar is free of charge, but registration is compulsory.
