OPINNO BioBizz Café ICC Ghent offers students in life sciences (bachelor, master, PhD) the unique opportunity to meet representatives from life sciences companies during the OPINNO BioBizz Cafés. This year we are organising a special BioBizz Café in collaboration with the BCF Career Event in Ghent.

Format: round table discussions with representatives from life sciences companies in an informal set-up. 


This is a unique opportunity to discuss any questions you may have about career opportunities in the industry, entrepreneurship, etc.


What is OPINNO?

OPINNO – open innovation for successful entrepreneurship – aims to bridge the gap between life sciences education and industry, and stimulate entrepreneurship among students. One of OPINNO's initiatives is to organize educational modules with life sciences entrepreneurs that share their industry experience with students.
