Entrepreneurial workshop | 21, 28 August and 4 September 2020

 

THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR PHD STUDENTS OF THE DURSAAM PROJECT AND ANY INTERESTED RESEARCHER, INCLUDING PHD SUPERVISORS.

In this focused short entrepreneurial workshop we look into the possible key exploitable results (KERs) which might arise from the ongoing research on alkali-activated materials for eco-friendly concrete, including the emerging use of a wider scope of different by-products (or wastes) as precursors for AAM concrete. KERs are (envisaged) research outputs which can be used to create impact towards economy and society.

This workshop takes place by means of 3 online discussion and working sessions, each of 2 hours, to identify and describe the KERs. Furthermore, expert talks are provided exemplary for entrepreneurship and creating impact out of research results.

This workshop is an excellent opportunity for researchers to train their entrepreneurial skills, but also to jointly come to a vision on how others could make specific use of AAM concrete research results for further utilization. As such, the outcomes of this workshop will be made available to the stakeholders of the European projects DuRSAAM and URBCON.

We look forward to welcome you at this course,
