Starting next Fall Semester: Minor Study Program in BioMed Entrepreneurship


The Faculty of Science and the Institute for Regenerative Medicine offer a new 30 ECTS Minor Study Program in BioMed Entrepreneurship. The program starts in September 2021.

The combination of research knowledge and entrepreneurial thinking spurs medical progress. If the translation of findings from basic research into the world of business succeeds, ideas turn into marketable products, therapies and applications. Conversely, research can be inspired by practical needs in the life sciences.

Motivated by UZH’s strategy as an "Entrepreneurial University", the new program provides students with a background in the Life Sciences with both interdisciplinary, science-based as well as practice-oriented training in entrepreneurial life sciences and translational medicine. 

Further information about the requirements is available at The courses are in English and start in HS 2021.
