""10 Steps to a good investor agreement" - customer support of Innovation Centers in relations with external investors.
The investor and the originators of the "start-up" have largely convergent interests - if the venture will be a success, then both sides in this earn. In the negotiations, the investor often has an advantage over the initiator, although the investment agreement should safeguard the interests of both parties. Originator often overestimates the value of his ideas and market potential, due to the lack of experience in estimating market risk. The session will help understand the point of view of both parties and the role of innovation centers in obtaining a balance between sides negotiating such agreements.

"Aspects of commercialization in the new constitution of science and higher education"
In Ministry of Science and Higher Education there are underway on a new constitution science and higher education called Act 2.0. The inspiration for the final shape should be the three proposals to be developed by the selected in the competition teams. Unfortunately, in all proposals presented issues of commercialization of research were treated marginally. This can be a major threat to the communities involved in this activity, but it can also provide an opportunity to come out with their own environmental proposal. PBICA want discussion at the conference to fill this gap.
