Are you a researcher and would you like to explore the possibility to commercialise your research and attract funding?

Then now you have the chance to do so for free!

AAU Innovation Supporting Entrepreneurship at AAU (SEA) is hosting inspirational events for researchers. Each event focuses on commercialising ideas from research.

24 June: Pitching your Research

This is a hands-on workshop where you will be trained in pitching your research ideas in an attractive manner that is understandable for people outside your narrow research field. Presenting your research in a nice and easily understandable manner is increasingly important, to establish industry partnerships, to get funding from your research, etc.

Participation is free but you need to register for the event. Sign up online.

20 August: Funding Opportunities at AAU, the EU and the Innovation Fund

Speakers from the above three organizations will speak about funding opportunities for researchers that want to realize or commercialize their research ideas. We will also present a case from AAU where researchers managed to achieve funding to commercialize their idea: RiACT.

Participation is free but you need to register for the event. Read more about the event and sign up here. 


The workshops and events are organised by AAU Innovation as part of the international project Science for Society. The Science for Society project is a multi-partner project to help researchers commercialise ideas from research. Partners include Århus University, Aalborg University and Lund University. The project runs from 2019-2021, with different activities within and around entrepreneurship for researchers.
