We will offer you the opportunity to join workshops on patenting, starting spin-offs and start ups, grant application, innovative thinking, and design. Also, you will hear the talks from distinguished professionals, academics, and consultants on the commercialization of their research, patenting of ideas and their experience with research in business and academia.

This event is organized back-to-back with the 2nd Polish Chapter Meeting in the beautiful port city of Gdansk. So you have the exciting opportunity to attend both meetings, which are open and free for all MCAA members.
