The training programme for leaders of the projects chosen for CaixaImpulse 2018 continues to make progress. In this respect, the Tech Transfer & Valorisation week will be held from 15 to 19 October. Most of the sessions will be held at the Palau Macaya in Barcelona.

Led by a number of different experts, the training week focuses on product development and intellectual property, both in relation to projects in the field of therapeutics as well as for projects related to diagnostics and medical devices. There will also be two practical case study sessions on technology transfer. In one of the other sessions, participants will be asked to present their project to a number of experts, who will evaluate and assess them. Last but not least, the final day will be spent on one-on-one meetings with mentors and networking activities.
