On June we took charge of the digital communication duties for CaixaImpulse, a programme led by "la Caixa" Foundation and Caixa Capital Risc that promotes entrepreneurship in the biomedicine and life sciences sectors.
Since 2015, CaixaImpulse has annually opened a call for proposals to research projects with potential to transfer their results to the market, whether by means of a license or through the creation of a start-up. After overcoming several filters, the selected projects receive economic support and join a training and mentoring programme to take the first steps into entrepreneurship and transfer to industry.
Our role for the next 12 months will be to constantly manage and update the programme's website, to write related news and, in general, to keep up to date with the sector news in order to inform the community through the portal. In fact, one of the first tasks we had to deal with was to write the information about the 23 projects taking part in this year's edition and lay it out within the website. We would like to congratulate the responsible researchers for getting this far, and we wish them the best of luck in their new endeavour.
