On the 3rd of October 2018 the Innovation Forum London and Science Practice organised a workshop on identifying what is a good problem to solve. The workshop took place at the Seminar Room, 28th Floor, Guy’s Hospital Tower Wing.
Translating research into a business is not easy. But having a better understanding of the real-world problems that your research could be solving is a great first step and is itself challenging.
According to Ana Florescu, the Head of Good Problems at Science Practice, the scientific method is an excellent skill for successful entrepreneurship.
This interactive workshop brought together science entrepreneurs to define and validate real-world problems and to think of possible solutions together.
