Idea Lab Quantum

2-day workshop for PhDs and postdocs to transform quantum research into commercial applications.

The TUM Venture Lab Quantum IdeaLab Quantum workshop format is supporting PhDs and postdocs with translating their quantum research into commercial use cases. The two-day program provides participants with the tools to identify practical applications of their work and best practices for establishing a research-based start-up. The main objective is to bridge the gap between academic research and entrepreneurial action, leveraging scientific expertise for societal benefits.

In the workshop, participants will learn how to dissect their research into its core technologies to identify potential commercial use cases. The program also provides them with comprehensive guidance on how to launch a deep tech start-up, covering the entire process from IP-management to customer acquisition. Additionally, they will get the chance to practice communicating their ideas effectively to non-technical audiences. Hence, the IdeaLab equips participants with the necessary skills to turn their academic work into impactful innovations.

The IdeaLab Quantum welcomes PhD candidates and postdocs with research in quantum technologies and related fields – regardless of your department, faculty or institute affiliation.
