BCF Career online courses

BCF Career offers several online courses for PhD candidates working in the life sciences.

BioBusiness Winter School: After taking the 2020 BioBusiness Summer School online due to COVID-19 and receiving very positive feedback from participants, we have decided to make the online format a project on its own, running alongside the traditional in-person Summer School. The three days programme taking place online on 3-5 February 2021 is a balance between theoretical sessions focusing on key knowledge of main business topics and interactive sessions with business leaders giving their insights in the world of European Life Sciences companies. A great way for MScs, PhDs and postdocs considering a career switch from academia to industry.

Early-bird rates are still available until 15 November. More information: https://www.hyphenprojects.nl/bbws


BioBusiness Summer School: The summer school is an introductory course for academics who are contemplating a career switch to industry and young professionals in their first industry jobs. During the five day programme, taking place from 28 June – 2 July 2021 in Amsterdam, participants will learn the basics of the main business topics, gain insight into the world of Life Sciences companies, meet leading business people and expand their international network.
