One day will be dedicated to innovation and entrepreneurship in marine science (“Turquoise Day”; turquoise = blue economy + green innovation; inter-sectoral and non academic lecturers) as a part of the compulsory RiMER course.
An optional specific course (Marine Entrepreneurship; 4 ECTS) is included as a part of the formation programme (Module 7. Marine Environmental Careers). This taught part is aimed at developing their creative and entrepreneurial thinking and provide students with skills to recognize and generate opportunities aligned to their capacities.
We are exploring the possibility to offer one award per cohort to that outstanding graduate who is willing to create her/his own company; the award would include technical and expert advice and free market study by a renowned financial company and would be logistically supported by the UPV/EHU TTI office.
