The Oncopole and IRICoR have joined forces to launch the Scholarship Competition – Entrepreneurship in Oncology (CEO), offering the next generation of scientists an opportunity to participate in the first edition of the Life Sciences Entrepreneurship Development Program.
This practical and immersive training was launched in 2018 through a partnership between Montréal InVivo, Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Pharmacy and Concordia University’s John Molson Executive Centre, in collaboration with IRICoR, in order to develop their entrepreneurial skills in life sciences. The program participants will undergo over 150 hours of management training to increase their knowledge on strategy development for innovative companies.
