Registration is closed. If you would like to apply, please make sure to do so by Thursday 21 March at the latest. Once you applied, the scientific organizers will decide whether you are accepted to participate. Note that there are limited seats available. 

A description of the company cases will be available soon at 'workshop files'. 

Since 2013, NWO has been organizing the Life Sciences with Industry workshop together with the Lorentz Center. In this workshop, 25 young scientists (PhD/Postdoc) and (junior) researchers from both academia and industry work closely together during a week to find original solutions to three challenging industrial problems. The workshop is intended to encourage cooperation and exchange of knowledge between academia and industry.

This year’s cases are the following:

  • PathoFinder: a fast and safe method for nucleic acid extraction
  • Getinge: improving sustainability in the development of single-use bioreactors
  • Yaghma: assessing and providing guidelines for AI in healthcare decision-making 

So are you a young scientist with a background in Life science, bio-informatics, biology, environmental or sustainability 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? If yes, apply now for one of these interesting cases and join the Life Science with Industry Workshop!

We hope to welcome you at Life Science with Industry 2024!

Please note that dinner is arranged for every evening of this week, except for Friday.
