Within the AHEAD program we have seen that the same contents don't fit with every team. This is why we see as quite important to create clustered topics, that are similar with eachother. Impactful projects are cruicial for our near future. Knowing this, we created two tailored programs, that focus on the needs of start-ups with a big impact. These track do not subtitute, but rather enrich the main AHEAD program.
- The SDG Track is for any spin-off or licensing projects at Fraunhofer that seek to solve global social or environmental challenges in an entrepreneurial way according to the SDGs. The Sustainable Development Goals of the UN are presumably the most relevant To-Do-list of the world: They will serve until 2030 as a north star for securing a sustainable development worldwide.
- The Life Science Track, a special subprogram for tech transfer projects in the fields of medtech (hardware) and drug development. This is inarguably one of the most discussed topics and certainly a field of research which requires special attention.
