Does my idea already need to have an IP license before applying ?

No. During the workshop, you will not be asked to disclose the details of your invention.

I have been accepted as idea champion. Do I get reimbursed for an eventual overnight stay and for the travel?

No. You have to cover yourself the travel and accomodation expenses.

Is the attendance to a pre-training on intellectual property a requirement to be accepted as idea champion at the bench2biz workshop?

No. You can be accepted as an idea champion also without having attended a pre-training. Attending a pre-training in IPI issues is an opportunity for further learning and a better preparation opportunity.
