Are you studying life sciences and are you curious about what the life sciences industry has to offer? Then you should join our OPINNO event for students!

OPINNO – open innovation – aims to bridge the gap between life sciences education and industry, and to stimulate entrepreneurship among students. OPINNO offers the opportunity for students to connect with life sciences entrepreneurs who share their industry experience:

  • What can a career in a life sciences company look like?

  • Which assets are important as a scientist? Do you need a PhD?

  • Examples of different job descriptions in life sciences companies: managers talk about what they do on a daily basis and explain what their responsibilities are.

To prepare yourself for the event, take a look at our practical overview to learn more about the domains in life sciences and its starter jobs.

During the event you can get in touch with several representatives from life sciences companies. This is a unique opportunity to discuss any questions you may have about career opportunities in the industry, entrepreneurship, etc.

Registration is free of charge but mandatory before 10 April 2024. Too late to register online? No problem, you can register on-site as well!
