Innovation and Entrepreneurship Workshop
Place: Pavilhão do Conhecimento, Lisbon
Organized by: Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program, funded by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia 

Deadline to submit a proposal: June 14, 2013 (extended deadline)

On June 20, 2013, the Carnegie Mellon Portugal Program will hold the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Workshop, at the Pavilhão do Conhecimento, in Lisbon. This half-day event (13:00 – 18:00) will combine a Pitch Coaching Session "Product Idea" with Case Studies on “Multiple Paths for Technology Commercialization," and will finish with a roundtable about "The Life of Intellectual Property." The goal of the workshop is to discuss different potential commercialization pathways, to provide an overview of different types of support for knowledge transfer in Portugal and at Carnegie Mellon University, to provide an overview of the IP lifecycle, as well as to bring together the CMU Portugal community. 

The Pitch Coaching Session “Product Idea” is mostly oriented to students and faculty members, with an interest in receiving feedback about ideas for applications of their research. You are all invited to be a part of this session, and to contribute by presenting your ideas for products or services created from your research. You can find detailed information about this session at http://www.cmuportugal.org/tiercontent.aspx?id=4660.

During the event we will have several speakers, namely: João Claro, national director of the CMU Portugal Program; Susana Sargento, co-founder of Veniam; Hugo Gamboa, CEO of Plux - Wireless Biosignals; Reed McManigle, manager for business development and licensing, CTTEC, Carnegie Mellon University; Paulo Marques, co-founder and CTO of Feedzai; Pedro Araújo, CEO of ACSystems - Advanced Cyclone Systems; José Maria Maurício, member of the directive council at INPI; Maria Oliveira, director of Universidade do Porto Innovation (UPIN)*; and Luis Joaquim, PMO director of Critical Software. The final agenda is available at: http://www.cmuportugal.org/tiercontent.aspx?id=4658.
