-How to evaluate my project from the market point of view?
-How to protect my research with a patent?
-How to efficiently communicate the potential of my research to the food sector?
The Program Faculty is composed of speakers and mentors like industry executives, investors and entrepreneurs and will be led by Pegram Harrison, professor of entrepreneurship in the Saïd Business School at Oxford University. The event food company sponsor is Pepsico.
