Sept 14-15, 2018 Life Sciences PostDoc/Innovation Day 2018, Zurich

Dear postdoctoral fellows and PhD students,

We are pleased to announce and invite you to the Life Sciences PostDoc Day 2018 , which will be held at ETH Zurich main building on the 14th of September. This is an exciting networking and information-based event, offering opportunities for meeting new colleagues and academic resources, learning about their work, initiating exchanges and collaborations that can push your research and career further. This year’s PostDoc Day has been re-invented and expanded to focus on scientific collaboration and transitioning from the postdoctoral period into future careers.

For the first time we are also organizing a second complementary meeting called Life Sciences Innovation Daywhich takes place on the 15th of September at ETH Zurich main building. The Innovation Day brings together leaders from academia and industry to discuss current challenges and develop new concepts for an ecosystem fostering open science and innovation. Innovation Day provides more opportunities for those seeking networks between academia, industry, and clinical medicine.

Together, these two days form the first “Open Innovation in Life Sciences” conference. These back-to-back partner events complement each other and give young researchers unique opportunities to network amongst themselves and take inspiration from leaders in academia and industry. Come explore cross-disciplinary collaborative projects and career paths, and join a sustainable community of like-minded young life scientists!
