Biomedical Congress

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 (13:00h - 19:00h)

The Biomedical Congress is an annual event organized by the master students of Biomedical Sciences and for the first time also the students Industrial Engineering at KU Leuven. This year, the 8th edition will take place and the Biomedical Congress has become an established concept in our education. In this light, we get full support from the faculty of Medicine and the faculty of Industrial Engineering in the organization of this event. Master and bachelor students of Biomedical Sciences, Biochemistry and Clinical Engineering are invited to attend the lectures and job fair. Also, interested (para)medical and PhD students, as well as researchers of the department of Biomedical Sciences are more than welcome.

The Biomedical Congress consists essentially of two parts: the scientific research lectures and the job fair. The first part focuses on guiding our colleague-students into the world of scientific research with lectures from renowned researchers in the field. We offer a main lecture accessible to everyone and several lectures in smaller groups about hot topics in the broad field of science. The second pan is a job fair, which focuses on (PhD-)students who are at the end of their educational career. We want to offer them an additional way to get in touch with companies interested in employees with our profile.

It is important and interesting for students to broaden their view from the textbooks in their education to the different job opportunities that are waiting at the end of the line. The Biomedical Congress can be a step in the integration of education, research and industry.

We can present you the following:
• A place at the job fair
• A bundle of résumés from the 2nd master students of Biomedical Sciences and a bundle of résumés from the master students Indus trial engineering
• The company logo on the poster of the Biomedical Congress
• The company logo on the website of the Biomedical Congress

We offer this package for the price of €500. If you are only interested in the job fair or the résumés, the price is €250 each. We are open for suggestions or alternative ways for sponsoring the Biomedical Congress. The Biomedical Congress is free of charge for the students and researchers. Although we are supported by the faculty, the financial funding is limited. Therefore, we are permanently looking for resources from interested partners to keep the event low-cost.
The funding obtained by sponsoring will be used for 2 projects. Firstly, the Biomedical Congress will need financing for the organization of the reception, equipment, ... Secondly, part of the money will be used to fund the promotion of the graduating students of Biomedical Sciences and Industrial Engineering as a celebration of the end of their educational career.
