IoP Research Summit 2023


Workshop on Start-up Founding


How can excellent research be turned into a product and thus be made available to society? This question was explored at this year's Research Summit of the Cluster of Excellence “Internet of Production”, abbreviated IoP.

At the full-day workshop at the Nell-Breuning-Haus in Herzogenrath on June 6, 2023, everything revolved around the topic of start-up founding:
The day began with presentations by RWTH Innovation GmbH and Startup Village on topics such as the various phases of a start-up, the development of a marketable product, thus from idea to product, and financing options.
This was followed by a field report from Montgomery Jaritz, one of the two founders of the company Ionkraft GmbH, which got its start as a spin-off from RWTH.
The remainder of the day consisted of group work where the information imparted could be applied to the participants' own research results.

The workshop was an exciting experience and once again highlighted the need to disseminate research results outside the scientific community.
