The Sixth Ideas Generation Program Sponsored by the Barcelona Synchrotron Park Has Begun
The Ideas Generation Program organized by PRUAB, the UAB University research park, is an original initiative supported by Barcelona Synchrotron Park that sponsors the top prize: every year, it aims at offering companies the benefit of the UAB researchers’ wealth of creativity to get proposals to their technological challenges.

The 2017 Ideas Generation Program began on last October 6 and is focussed this year on challenges in the biotechnology and biomedicine sectors. It involves 40 researchers from different research centers of the UAB campus that will carry out 10 innovative projects.

For this reason, the 2017 program is jointly organized by the Catalan Biotechnology Network (XRB), sponsored by Roche Diagnostics, Air Liquide and the City Council of Sant Cugat, in addition to the Barcelona Synchrotron Park and counts on the collaboration of Biocat, CataloniaBio, TrifermedCBDO and ReigJofre. These partners have presented different technological challenges to the researchers such as new proteins elaborations, low cost sterilization processes, biotechnology 3D printing methods, among others.

During 8 weeks, participants will work on the development of their idea and on a first business plan that will be presented in a competition before a panel of experts in valorisation of business ideas.

Good luck to all participants!
