The students will develop the competences aimed for this course by means of three main learning activities:
Theoretical lectures, which will consist in systematic explanations of the main concepts and analytical frameworks underlying the different topics covered along the course. Students will be given the appropriate bibliographic references in advance, so that they can study and prepare for eatch session.
Practical sessions, during which students will analyze real-life case studies applying the contents previously explained in the theoretical lectures. Students will prepare the case studies and submit their analysis in writing before the session, when they will be discussed under the teacher¿s supervision and guidance. Active participation is expected from the students.
End-of-term Project (teamwork): The students will develop a business plan for a biomedical startup, in which they will apply the course contents to an original business project.
