Science for Society tool box Science for Society: Entrepreneurship tools - a tool box for helping researchers create impact from their research

Entrepreneurship tools - a tool box for helping entrepreneurs create impact from their research is a collection of tools that have been developed, tested and utilised in the EU Interreg project Science for Society, which, primarily, focused on teaching entrepreneurial skills to junior researchers (PhD students and postdocs) and increasing their awareness of and competences in relation to how they can put their research into use, both as commercialization and societal impact.

As a researcher, you can use the tools to gain insight into the entrepreneurial mindset, acquire concrete competencies to help you commercialize or create societal impact with your research, or to get inspiration about alternative career paths outside academia.

As a facilitator, you can use the tools to create individual workshops about the entrepreneurial mindset for junior researchers or you can create longer training programs.

In the project Science for Society, we have developed and worked with three entrepreneurial phases: Awareness, Competence and Realization, and the tools in this booklet are categorized by phase:

  • In the Awareness section, you will find tools/cases to inspire you and increase your knowledge about the entrepreneurial tools and mindset and how they can benefit researchers in generating: Industry collaborations, impact creation, research funding, and alternative career opportunities.
  • In the Competence section, you will find tools/concepts for hands-on training sessions and entrepreneurial competence-building.
  • In the Realization section you will find tools/concepts to help you/them move from idea to creating value from research.

The tools include a “how to”-guide for both researcher and facilitator. You can use the tools in a step-by step-training process or select the individual tools that are relevant for you.
