What is the Entrepreneurial Skills Development Program about?

Join us – Think Entrepreneurial, Increase your Research Impact!

ENRICH in the USA is launching its first Entrepreneurial Skills Development Program (ESDP) for European researchers. If you are a European researcher, the ESDP is designed to provide you with the necessary skills and technical trainings to spark your entrepreneurial mind-set and boost your research impact in the US – a country known for its “entrepreneurial culture”. Getting to know the US ecosystem will open more doors and market opportunities for you and your research.

The ESDP will take place in Philadelphia, PA, USA on 19th – 24th March 2020, in conjunction with the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) National Spring Meeting. The Program will provide a 3-day technical training and info session on crucial topics for entering the US market, before the ACS conference. Prior to the program you will be matched to highly-qualified experts from science and business – your ENRICH-mentor tailored to your specific needs.

Funded by the European Commission, this call will partially support 20 participants. If selected, you will

  • Attend information-sessions and technical trainings by experienced US trainers
