Over the course of a lifetime, changing a career path can be essential to realise one’s potentials. Deciding whether to pursue a future in an already established firm or embark on the adventure of setting up one’s own startup, the process can be daunting. Questions abound on how to recognise transferable skills, how to demonstrate these and seek out industry contacts, or discern a niche market for inventive products and services. Oftentimes, those who have developed their transferable skills as part of an academic career can feel that their qualifications and expertise are highly specific and so, translating their skill set to a career outside of academia might seem insurmountable.

In this webinar, you will hear presentations by entrepreneurs who have converted their academic careers into business ventures. Besides highlighting best practice examples and giving hands-on advice, you will also learn what is the path from ideation to innovation in the academic setting.

In addition to the above, get acquainted with some of the services and help that is available to those hoping to file patents in Japan or internationally. If you would like to publicise your findings according to their originality, practicality, suitability and utility while safeguarding your inventions, this webinar is for you.
