Participate in the UU Innovation Mentor Program 2022


You, a researcher or PhD student at the Faculty of Pharmacy, can now apply to participate in the UU Innovation Mentor Program. Take the chance to develop your research results into value-creating societal benefit and to build new networks in collaboration with a committed mentor. Apply no later than 30 September 2021.

In the UU Innovation Mentor Program, you, a researcher or PhD student at Uppsala University, will be matched with a mentor with experience from business and society. You have the idea or research result that you believe can create societal benefit. Your mentor contributes with the perspectives, knowledge and contacts that create opportunities for the development of both yourself and your idea.

Do you need help spotting your idea to utilise based on your research? Start by taking the UU Innovation self-test or participate in UU Innovation's lunch webinars. Here you will take the first step to concretise an idea with the potential to create societal benefit and lay the foundation for your participation in the mentor program.

The mentoring program is free of charge, runs January-June 2022 and includes:

  • Six individual meetings with your mentor
  • Kick-off and final session with all researchers and mentors in the program
  • A workshop specifically focused on the art of networking smartly and efficiently

Welcome to apply no later than 30 September 2021.
