Brain Chile

Brain Chile (Business, Research, Acceleration, and Innovation) is a program supported by the School of Engineering, the UC Anacleto Angelini Center for Innovation, the Universidad Católica Office of Technology Transfer and Development, and Banco Santander. The general objective of Brain Chile is to create economic, environmental, and social value for the country and world. To achieve this objective, Brain Chile promotes techno-scientific projects originating within Chilean higher education institutions, ultimately bringing projects closer to becoming a market reality.

Brain Chile supports projects through two parallel and complementary phases: (i) Prototyping and packaging, a phase that supports technology creation from basic to more advanced prototypes; and (ii) Business model development and validation.

Participation requirements:

  • Teams with 1-5 members
  • At least one team member must be affiliated with a higher education institution, whether as a student, academic, or researcher
  • Projects should have laboratory results, concept proofs, and/or prototypes supporting the technical feasibility of the idea
