Starting a career or developing it is not an easy task. For the 7th year in a row, BSNL and UNIL teamed up to organize the Life Science Career Day and showed the opportunities of career outside of academia to more than 250 participants through symposia, seminars and round-tables. Participants could network with more than 100 delegates from companies (, Promega, Biopole, Spring Professionals, …), associations (Toastmasters, SWAPP, …) and institutions (Apopo, BNF, …) during the Networking Forum, and hear some companies (Roche, Covance, …) present themselves during the Company Talks. A great success that makes us look forward to the 2019 edition!
