Qualities of an innovative thinker? Curiosity – how can we solve this problem for which there is not an existing solution or how do we better solve a problem for which there is already a solution?

Achieving the translational part of this trajectory typically requires patenting of the fundamental concepts of your invention. Translation can be achieved through various paths such as licensing of patents to an existing company or founding and financing a company focused on development of your invention.
