Introductory Session

This course was designed for the development of entreprenuership skills for SCIENT at national and European level.

A brief summary

SCIENT launched an innovative entrepreneurship program for PhD STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) students and graduates that focuses on the development of their transversal skills and provides them with a new professional path.

SCIENT means knowledgeable awareness. This was the ultimate aim of this European project: to make doctoral students and graduates aware of their career options, not limiting their prospects by considering only an academic/researcher career but being well aware about the possibility of utilizing their research findings and starting their own company.

The EU needs researchers who not only discover new things, but transfer knowledge to others, for maximum social and economic benefit. To this end, SCIENT, our project, developed an innovative entrepreneurship program for PhD STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) students and graduates, giving them an insight out of the ivory tower of pure research, developing their transversal skills and providing them with a new professional path.

Course Details

Leadership is the ability of a company's management to make sound decisions and inspire others to perform well. Effective leaders are able to set and achieve challenging goals, to take swift and decisive action, even in difficult situations, to outperform their competition, and to take calculated risks and to persevere in the face of failure. Strong communication skills, self-confidence, the ability to manage others, and a willingness to embrace change also characterize good leaders.
