Are you a scientist looking to move from an academic, research-driven environment to an industrial career?

Transitioning from academic research to working in the pharma and medtech industries can be challenging. Then FAU has the programme for you, where you will learn and apply industry-specific skills to ease your transition from academia to industry.

From Scientists to Innovators for Industry (SCI FI) is a 3 month blended-learning program consisting of online modules (with 7 basic modules and 5 industry specific modules), webinars, mentoring sessions and rounded off by three events (kick-off, mid program and final event). This course helps you overcome that challenge with the guidance of academic and industry partners, so that you can learn from real-life cases and have the opportunity to work with experienced mentors.

This programme is for you if you’re a young scientist based in any Horizon Europe country who:

  • Is working at a university, research institute, or clinic
  • Is a PhD candidate in any area of healthcare – especially MedTech and Pharma
  • Or has a Postdoc in healthcare

Duration: 23 August 2024 – 4 December 2024
