The Skills Development Center

The Boston Biomedical Innovation Center (B-BIC) Skills Development Center (SDC) offers workshops focused on Leadership, Management, and Entrepreneurship.

Researchers know how to develop groundbreaking new technologies.  However, to bring new technologies into the public arena where they can affect human health, researchers must also be able to navigate the path to commercialization, a process demanding a broader set of business, finance, and entrepreneurial skills.

The Skills Development Center offers open access online learning resources and customized services designed to promote academic technology commercialization efforts within B-BIC organizations and all Harvard-affiliated institutions.  The SDC is a partnership between Boston Biomedical Innovation Center and Harvard Catalyst | The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center.

Event details can be found at SDC Eventbrite for events scheduled in October and registration is currently open.
