PIER is pleased to announce its next PIER Innovation Lunch Talk "From Idea to Market - Validating a Product Idea in High-Tech“ taking place remotely (via Zoom) on March 24th, 2022, 12 noon – 1 p.m.

How do I turn a scientific discovery with high innovation potential into an actual product? How can the costly and time-consuming phase of technology and market validation, that is often referred to as the “valley of death”, be funded? These and other questions will be addressed during our next PIER Innovation Lunch Talk. Our speaker this time is Dr. Axel Schönbeck, postdoc at the Institute of Laser Physics (ILP) of Universität Hamburg. He and his two research partners have received funding from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) under its VIP+ funding scheme for the validation of their product idea. So bring your lunch to the Zoom room and seize the opportunity to learn from Axel’s experience!

We will send around the Zoom link to all registered participants shortly before the event. Deadline for registration is March 21st, 2022.
