To tackle these questions, YEBN (Young European Biotech Network), together with the btS (biotechnological Studentinitiative e.V.) and ANBI (Associazione Nazionale dei Biotecnologi Italiani) is organising a Career conference in 2012.
YEBN is an European-wide network of organisations and individuals engaged as students, researchers, professionals, project leaders in biotechnology and life sciences.
We aim at connecting people and their organisations, at promoting careers and the establishment of international projects; we help our organizations in improving services and opportunities to life scientists by fostering cooperation and exchanges; we represent the needs of young biotechnologists in Europe by interacting with the European Institutions.
The Life Sciences in the 21st century are widely valued as sources of innovative (bio)technology. Forming the basis of this international and research-based endeavour, young researchers nowadays face a rapidly changing and highly insecure job market. By organising this conference, we will give young scientist the opportunity to:
- Find out which skills are important for a career in Life Science industry
- Learn about European mobility support programmes, current innovation strategies, industrial PhD programmes and new ways of entrepreneurship
- Attend workshops to improve their career options
- Actively participate in discussions with European policy makers, stakeholders from national agencies, and life science industry
- Get to know their peers from all over Europe and embark on international projects supported by YEBN
Date: Friday, Saturday 12th – 13th October 2012
Location: Main building of the Technical University Berlin, Street of the 17th of June, No. 135
- 100 young life scientists, at undergraduate, master and doctorate level
