This morning on the 11th of July scientists and students worked on their Science & Innovation Award proposal during a ‘breakfast workshop’. The workshop was given by IXA business developers, while participants were enjoying a cup of coffee and croissant.
During the workshop, participants worked with the IXA triangle model. The model helped the participants to develop and improve their idea further. They also gained insight on how their proposals are going to be ranked and evaluated. During the second half of the workshop, participants discussed their innovative ideas with each other and gave presentations. Overall was the workshop a great success.
We wish all the participants a lot of good ideas when writing their application for the Amsterdam Science & Innovation Award!
