EEN Cyprus informs interested parties for the «Carots Startup School» Initiative which is addressed to Researchers interested in turning their skills into a business and fulfil the following Criteria:

  • who has an idea for a new scientific service company (Scientific Service Companies act as innovative problem solvers and facilitate applicable tailor-made solutions to industrial and societal challenges involving industry and academia.)
  • whose idea is based on an advanced analytical technique (advanced analytical techniques are considered methods utilising electrons, photons or neutrons for diffraction, scattering, microscopy and/or spectroscopy in a way which is not available in typical laboratories due to the need of certain research infrastructures like synchrotrons, neutron sources but also high-end electron microscopes or other devices.)
