Scientific entrepreneurship is becoming increasingly important as part of the progress towards a knowledge-based economy, particularly in the most developed countries.
Entrepreneurship represents an engine to bring to society the new knowledge generated thanks to R&D as well as a possible path for the future personal and professional development of researchers, especially the youngest.
For that reasons, the FEBS3+ Congress includes as part of its programme two specific sessions specifically devoted to entrepreneurship from biomed & biotech research, with the name of Entrepreneurship Forum
