ML4Q Technology Day 2022

ML4Q Technology Day is a two-day event organized together with QT.NMWP.NRW in order to bring together ML4Q’s early career scientists with experts from the corporate world. This year, the Technology Day will be all about knowledge transfer and entrepreneurship. We will start with a sparking introductory keynote by ML4Q member, Prof. Tommaso Calarco, who will speak about the making-of his tech-based startup followed by a panel discussion with several transfer experts from our cluster sites. The discussion will offer an overview on the different ways to transfer including securing IP rights – both for software/algorithm as well as hardware-related business ideas. Speakers representing different support structures and initiatives in NRW and our cluster universities will then present the various programs that provide scientists with the essential tools and funds to start their own businesses. After the lunch break, scientist entrepreneurs from NRW will talk about their lessons learned and give best practice insights out of their own founding experience.

Date and time: December 8, 10 am – 4 pm, Neuer Senatssaal, main building of the University of Cologne

Target audience: This event is aimed at PhD students, postdocs and PIs associated with ML4Q, but non-ML4Q members, in particular from the participating cluster institutions, are welcome as well. We kindly ask you to register by November 30.  If you have any questions please drop a line to the ML4Q Office.
