Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), Knowledge Empowered Entrepreneurship Network (KEEN), and the Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology (MITA) present the online Ideas to Innovation (i2i) programme developed by the experts from the University of Cambridge and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Early-stage Baltic region researchers and doctoral students are invited to apply for the online 3-day intensive and international training, the first time organised for the researchers from the whole Baltic region.
The Ideas to Innovation (i2i) programme has led to the successful development and commercialisation of existing ideas. More than 2,000 undergraduates and graduates across 85 universities have so far taken part and many have gone on to careers that they secured because of the learning on i2i. The i2i programme involved over 300 facilitators. Most of the facilitators are coming from various backgrounds across academia, industry, and the investor community; they are business angels, entrepreneurs, academics, and industry experts.
The programme “i2i Baltic” will be organised online on November 24–26, 2021 and is based on experiential learning. It allows the participants to strengthen their internal motivation, acquire basic business development knowledge and skills necessary for the commercialisation of ideas, and apply gained knowledge and competencies to research idea development or start a new venture.
All Baltics early-stage researchers and postdocs are welcome to apply for this programme. The selected delegates will be informed on MITA website by 19th November. The application selection will be done by MITA and KTU KEEN experts.
