Summer School #2: Valetta, Malta

The second training school of TRANSIT in Malta (11-13 May 2022) was a great a success! All ten ESRs were present physically during the 3-day training event, which was focused on the development of business skills. Industry representatives from within and outside the TRANSIT consortium gave insightful lectures ranging from topics such as academic technology transfer, managing intellectual property, knowledge valorisation, administrative and legal aspects of technology, patent applications, market research and many more topics! The training school concluded with ESRs presenting a business case study for each technology studied within the consortium (i.e., HHP, cold plasma, ultrasound and PEF)
