Event: How can research help startups to grow?

Silicon Luxembourg is hosting the morning event ‘How can research help startups to grow?’ on Tuesday, 26 September 2017. Speakers include the FNR’s Head of Innovation, Andreea Monnat, as well as the founders of two FNR-supported spin-offs from the University of Luxembourg.

You have a startup and you are looking for new ideas to make your product portfolio evolve?. You have experience about dealing with developers but you’ve never managed a research project? Do you know Luxembourg has a strong and multi-cultural community of motivated confirmed researchers and PhD candidates willing to join innovative projects – or even keen to turn their brilliant ideas into businesses? Did you know the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) can support you in your innovative journey with dedicated funding tools?

We are pleased to welcome three great speakers who will share their experiences to have a deeper understanding of the academic and industrial research ecosystem and how startups can take benefit from it. Don’t miss the opportunity to listen to their advice and ask them for support to integrate research into your business.
