1.º CADOS Entrepreneurship Day

Wednesday, March 29, 2023 - 10:00 to 16:00

Católica Doctoral School organizes the 1st Entrepreneurship Day with trainer João Miguel Santos Pereira, researcher at the Interdisciplinary Health Research Centre, on March 29th, at the Sintra Campus.

This event provides a hands-on introduction and aims to teach the difference between an idea and a business, and the steps of how to make the transition.

How do you know if it is worth pursuing an opportunity? How do you protect it? How do you fund it? How do you communicate it? These are some of the questions the 1st CADOS Entrepreneurship Day will approach.

The event is open to any researcher, doctoral and postdoctoral student from Universidade Católica Portuguesa.
