What is OPINNO?

OPINNO – open innovation for successful entrepreneurship – aims to bridge the gap between life sciences education and industry, and stimulate entrepreneurship among students. One of OPINNO's initiatives is to organize educational modules with life sciences entrepreneurs that share their industry experience with students.
