OPINNO educational module Leuven: Get to know the life sciences industry and its various job opportunities

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

This OPINNO module will tackle topics as:

  • 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.

Registration is free of charge but registration is mandatory before 26 April 2019.


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.
