Simon Robinson's picture


The 6th International Summer School on Technology Transfer in Life Sciences will take place in Dresden from 17th September – 21st September 2018, with the kind support of external experts on technology transfer.

During this one-week training program, participants will gain knowledge on technology transfer from experts in the fields of technology evaluation, patenting, licensing, and spin-off development. Participants will learn the basics of technology transfer, enabling them to identify the commercial potential within their research, how to patent and license it, how to develop a spin-off, and how to fund all these activities. They will learn about important pitfalls when approaching industry and get expert coaching on pitching in front of potential investors, including a mock-pitch in front of a real expert investor panel!

Interested? Then apply now through the on-line application form on the web-site.

Gender-based violence is widespread in every place, every culture, every geographical area, and every social class. The scientific and academic fields are not exempt from this phenomenon, and indeed, violence, marginalisation, discrimination and other forms of abuses against women are as frequent as elsewhere. A particular aspect of this violence is sexual harassment, which includes attitudes put in place in individual terms, suffered specifically by individuals, and operated by individuals or groups. These may be physical, moral, or social, although in the vast majority of cases these are attitudes, words, or actions done predominantly by single men on single women (single in the sense, unfortunately, of one at a time), and who are individually endured.

It is necessary to take steps forward that lead to quantification, awareness, and to the activation of a mechanism, especially social, which will finally bring a solution. It is a long journey, but in this historical moment, it is not only possible, but a duty, and almost ‘easy’ to start, following the example of many other women in several fields.

What do we know about harassment in other European countries? Most of the episodes reported in scientific journals refer to the USA. Do we want to believe that the situation is better in Europe? Or maybe in the old continent it is still preferable to keep the problem under wraps?

‘Prevention is better than cure’, this is why we need to know the terms of question we are facing, to put in place the right tools for prevention. Having a clear picture is also necessary to be able to say tomorrow that prevention has worked. But until prevention is sufficiently effective, we need to find ways to address the problem.
