The research-to-startup program consists of 12 workshops run over the course of four years, one workshop every four months. Each workshop addresses a key topic of turning research, in particular doctoral studies work, into a startup. The workshops build on each other and are aligned with the trajectory of a doctoral student at a university. We run the workshops every month, creating four cohorts, shifted each by one year, to allow any interested person to join on an annual basis and adjust their intake speed to their needs.
