The Medicinal Chemistry French Society (in French, Société de Chimie Thérapeutique, SCT) and the industrial property consulting company (Grosset-Fournier-Demachy, GFD) co-organise a one-day introductory seminar on industrial property to institute Curie’s researchers.

This seminar will be presented by senior researchers and industrial property professionals in 5 modules ranging from basic notions to the rules and constraints in this field.

In this course, we will help you to:

1. Highlight the advantages of your work: what to focus on, how to say it, and when to say it;
2. Present in a way that is clear for both experts and non-experts on the panel;
3. Anticipate the typical questions you are likely to be asked;
4. Learn how to deal with unpleasant questions and aggressive panel members;
5. Practice before your peers, and get feedback on your message, speaking style, and overall stage presence.

This theoretical and practical training is an introduction to image processing and analysis using the FIJI software.
This course will be taught in French.
