Biotech industry career days

University - Industry Collaboration (UIC) often starts through personal contacts. To facilitate a good career start for our students and increase UIC, the Department of Biotechnology, NTNU, and the Digital Life Norway Research School, join forces and invite you to a biotech career day with focus on industry.


Whether a job within biotech industry is already a part of your career plan, or if you are just a bit curious on what it would take to find a job within the industry, we encourage you to join us in Trondheim these two days. Centre for Digital Life will also present its international trainee program for PhD and post docs of the Digital Life Norway Research School.

Digital Life Norway Research School support members who want to attend with travel grants.
