TIMCC dedicated Training Events


Careers in Industry series (2013-2016)
The ‘Careers in Industry’ series were organised by P8-Synovo. These sessions were set up to raise awareness of alternative, rewarding careers for researchers, particularly in the private sector. 4 session took place during the project period:
Session 1 (2013): From preparation to interview to success in work
Session 2 (2014): Difference between company and academic research

– Session 3 of ‘Careers in Industry’ series was combined with the training workshop on Development of Immunotherapeutic Antibodies, IPR and Industry Aspects, organized by the P7-Alligator on 18 September 2015 in Lund (SE).

– Session 4 (2016): ‘How do I identify what I am good at and use that knowledge in interviews for private sector jobs’ was addressed. The students were provided with a real job advertisement.  They were asked to read and comprehend it and then discuss what the advertisement was asking for and how it may be reflected in a job interview for the position. Subsequently the application and interview process was discussed from the point of view of the employer and how the applicant may adapt to this.  The students were attentive and generally engaged in discussion.
