To address urgent societal needs like climate change we need scientists to turn their breakthrough research into successful businesses. A lot of research done at universities can have a big impact on people and planets but since universities mostly focus on fundamental research and education, it’s not getting out of the building. So how can we get scientists to start their own companies without having to say farewell to their academic careers? That’s where Faculty of Impact comes in. A new two-year program that runs inside universities and gives scientists the time and resources to turn their breakthrough research into a business.
