ScienceIN2Business® is an innovative methodology that encourages and supports the economic valorisation of scientific and technological knowledge in higher education institutions and research centres within the University of Lisbon.

The methodology is based on annual cycles so it can settle and spread exponentially covering an increasing number of students, teachers and researchers.

Each cycle is divided into three stages, designed in a sequential, interdependent and replicable flow.

Get to know more about each stage, access the application forms, and learn about previous editions.

The LEARNING stage is divided in formal and non-formal education: the first includes optional courses on entrepreneurship and innovation destined to undergraduate and graduate students; non-formal education consists of workshops on various topics of business, design and innovation that are open to students and the general public.
