FET2RIN’s main goal is helping researchers to learn how to rapidly develop and test novel solutions by gathering feedbacks. Many projects fail to generate impact, as startups fail to succeed on the market, by not validating their ideas early on, with real-life customers. To mitigate that, researchers attending FET2RIN workshops will learn how to apply the lean start-up approach, getting “out of the lab”, search for unmet needs and validate their impact related assumptions. Lean Startup is a new, field-tested philosophy that, within FET2RIN, provides researchers with a toolset to increase chances of generating impact for their projects.
Our coaches will guide FET teams through assumption identification, customer interviews, rapid experimentation, and new exploitation opportunities. FET2RIN training pushes teams outside their “comfort zone” and changes the way they look at research results in the view of use and impact.
Workshops will follow the flipped classroom approach: video materials will be provided on-line before the coaching, and time in Brussels will be mainly devoted to team-work, discussion, debates and review. The FET2RIN training is based on 3 workshops in Brussels, at the EBN premises. Participants will work from “home” in between the workshops. Training is free of charge. Travel, accommodation and subsistence costs can be reported as project cost for running FET projects.
