What is a CRO?... and how could it affect me, my research or innovation project?


Date // 10 June 2022

Time // 13.00-14.00

Place // Online


A CRO can assist you in a multitude of ways, but it can be hard to understand exactly how and why you as a researcher should work with a CRO.

On the 10th of June we will be hosting a webinar with Wuxi Apptec – a major Contract Research Organization. The Vice President of Research and Development Dave Madge will be guiding us through the different ways that researchers can work with a CRO, and how it can benefit researchers working within a variety of life science areas.

Dave has more than 20 years of experience working with CRO’s in an academic setting and has a Ph.D in Chemistry from Imperial College, London.

All researchers at Aarhus University are invited – but the webinar will be especially relevant for the ones with an entrepreneurial mindset. We hope you will join us for an exciting webinar.

Nordic Innovation Fair


Date // 26-27 September 2022

Nordic universities create significant potential for translating early-stage research-based inventions into products and services which benefit society. However, to realise the full potential, it requires support from external business partners.

Therefore the annual Nordic Innovation Fair offers a free and unique matchmaking and networking opportunity by bringing together all stakeholders across the innovation ecosystem. Researchers and spinouts from the nordic countries will present their inventions with the aim of finding business opportunities for: licensing, co-development, research collaboration, funding and/or investment.
