Research to Business: Summit, Aalborg

2020-09-10 @ 13:00 - 16:00


AAU Innovation in collaboration with AAU Business School are inviting all students interested in business development and entrepreneurship to join our event on September 10th from 13.00 to 16.00.

Building great teams around great research ideas

  • Are you interested in realizing research ideas to create impact in society?
  • Do you lack a great idea?
  • Are you interested in joining a team to transform the research idea to business?
  • Or potentially taking the lead in creating and becoming CEO?

Who is this relevant for?

  • All students interested in business development and entrepreneurship

At this event, you will get the change to:

  • Use your knowledge and competencies to commercialize exciting research ideas
  • Join a startup team and create impact in society
  • Take the lead in creating a team and becoming CEO


On September 10th from 13.00 to 16.00, 3 – 4 great ideas from AAU researchers will be presented.

The ideas alle have in common that they have great potential and need someone with business skills to help drive them forward.

This is where we need you!

At the event you will be placed into groups around the research ideas and will develop a value proposition canvas together with the researcher and an experienced business mentor. You will be focused on considering how the research idea can be turned into a product, for which customer segments it can be sold, and what value it can provide to these customers. The exercise will help determine what value you can bring to the project.

After the program

You can register you interest in specific projects in a prioritized order and we will facilitate the creation of startup teams. It is possible  to do this up to 1 week after the event.

The student team and the researcher will share the ownership in any potential company created as a result of this.

The business mentor may also join as advisor for the new startups.

The entire process will be facilitated by skilled business developers from AAU’s Innovation department and AAU Business School.

Together we will focus on realizing and commercializing AAU research ideas to create an impact on society.
