    Industry Meets Academia

    The day is organized in two sessions:

    In the morning, a group-based networking to promote professional exchanges in a small setting and provide a clear view of the career opportunities in industry.

    In the afternoon, two sessions in parallel: a guided networking session (group rotations), a free form mingle to continue the discussions. A station-based networking (limited seats) to promote individual interactions. Participants meet the company representatives based on ranking during registration, arrive prepared and have a short period of time (10 min) to interact with their assigned partners.

    Are you ready to meet Industry?

    Participating companies: Agilent Technologies, Bioneer, Novo Nordisk, Novozymes, Symphogen.
