Aims and description Life Science with Industry workshop 11 – 15 November 2019
Are you a young scientist with a background in the life sciences or a related research field and do you have a creative and inquisitive mind? Do you like to think outside-the-box? Do you want to meet new people from other disciplines, including mathematics, physics, chemistry and engineering? If yes, apply now for the fifth ‘Life Sciences with Industry’ Lorentz workshop.
Echoing the successful workshops in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, and 2018, NWO, Research School BioSB and the Lorentz Center join forces to organize a challenging 5-days workshop that will take place in the Lorentz Center in Leiden. Various life sciences companies will formulate a scientifically challenging R&D problem which will be tackled by a small team of 5 to 6 young researchers. Participants, PhD students and postdocs, will be selected by their motivation for participation and scientific background. They are expected to come up with creative solutions to challenging, practical and real-life problems. During the workshop, participants will make new contacts and have opportunities to develop future job perspectives. On the last day of the workshop, all groups will present and discuss their problem solution together with the industrial partners.
