Scholarships for biomedical start-ups
In collaboration with Janssen Pharmaceutica NV, full scholarships are available for biomedical start-ups to attend the blended course Clinical Development
Promising candidates from start-ups currently developing a product for a new medical intervention (i.e. medicinal product, medical device or medical nutritional product) can apply. The scholarship awards the full course fee of €5600,- and gives access to the complete blended course Clinical Development: a 5-week online introduction course (study load 5 hours/week)+ 4 days on-campus + 5 days on-campus extended.
The 3-part Clinical Development course introduces the Question-Based Clinical Development approach to define the most optimal development pathway for new medical interventions (online course with exam) and offers participants a unique opportunity to work on extensive teaching cases based on real R&D projects in interdisciplinary groups (on-campus course). Finally, a individual mentor guides participants to write a ready-to-submit clinical trial application (on-campus extended course). Seating is limited (max 25 participants per course) to ensure the highest quality and intensive interactions.
This accredited certificate course received 4.6 out of 5 stars from participants.

- You work at a start-up currently developing a product for a new medical intervention (medicinal product, medical device or medical nutritional product)
