Innosuisse funding online event March 11

For many researchers willing to become (bio-) entrepreneurs, or more generally interested in commercializing promising research results, finding funds to develop an innovative project is a challenging task. Furthermore, many new questions arise: Is my research advanced enough to ask for an Innosuisse funding? Are Innosuisse grants also covering feasibility studies and prototypes? Do I need patent protection? How should I present my business strategy? What are the chances of getting such an Innosuisse grant? How does the selection process work?

During this online event, we will discuss why and when you should apply to an Innosuisse grant without implementation partner. We’ll also cover, through a formal presentation and testimonials from UNIGE researchers’ recipients of this grant, how this key source of funding could give you a key advantage to drive your product development as well as reinforce intellectual property in order to increase competitive advantage. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers.
