About the Course

Following a very successful pilot year, the ECA course returned in 2014 and took place at the INSEAD campus in Fontainebleau, France (22–26 September). With only minor changes in the faculty, the course continued to focus on the elements and skills necessary to take innovative research from laboratories to the pharmaceutical market place, including:

  • Understanding the business potential of research
  • Obtaining and defending intellectual property
  • Assessing financial value
  • Pitching a business plan for investors and partners

Tuition fees, on-site accommodation and transport will be covered by FOCIS, thanks to an educational grant by Celgene.
