Welcome to the next event from the Health Talks series – health, life sciences and entrepreneurship talks organised by Aalto University, Centria Health Hub, Health Design, Health Hub Tampere, HealthHub Finland EDIH, Healthtech Finland, Health Turku, HiLIFE (University of Helsinki), Kuopio Health, OuluHealth and Terkko Health Hub.


In this Health Talks, we will look at the paths that PhD researchers can undertake to commercialise their idea.

Doing a PhD often feels like a natural step of a prospecting academic career, which usually leads to a postdoc or a researcher positions and occasionally down the line to a professorship. However, it doesn’t need to be so, and there are many ways how a PhD and the concepts one works on during the programme can benefit the world already now. In this event, we will hear inspiring stories of doctoral researchers who decided to follow an unconventional path and take steps in commercialising their promising results.

The event is jointly organized by Aalto University and HiLIFE from the University of Helsinki. Each presentation is directly followed by a Q&A session.
