The subject of his speech...
Young people confronted with modern trends in the creation of products and services. From idea to market.
The speech will be developed on two main axes: 1. How do we transform our ideas and knowledge into products and services and, by extension, create product value, 2. What are the steps and skills required by a new scientist to develop a business With examples, we will develop the stages and prerequisites in the process of transition from technological innovation to the commercial exploitation of an idea, and we will look at the factors that contribute positively, as opposed to those that inhibit the transition from scientific to entrepreneurial activity.
