FlandersBio meets students: OPINNO BioBizz Café Ghent

Thursday, February 23, 2017 (17:00h - 21:00h)

OPINNO – open innovation for successful entrepreneurship – aims to bridge the gap between life sciences education and industry, and stimulate entrepreneurship among students. OPINNO organizes a.o. BioBizz Cafés with life sciences entrepreneurs that share their industry experience with students.

FlandersBio meets students: OPINNO BioBizz Café Ghent

The café will kick off with a workshop by recruitment agency Hudson. This workshop will give you the opportunity to prepare for psychometrical screenings within the scope of recruitment.

In preparation for this workshop we would like to ask you to fill in a few tests (you will receive these tests in your mailbox after subscription). These tests will give you more insight in your talents and points of interest. You will have the possibility to discuss your test results with an expert from Hudson during the workshop.

Deadline for filling in the tests: Sunday 19 February 2017. You will receive your personalized report with your results on Wednesday 22 February 2017.

The workshop is followed by round table discussions with representatives from life sciences companies and an informal get-together with free drinks and snacks (check the programme below). This is a unique opportunity for students in the life sciences to discuss any questions they may have about career opportunities in the industry, entrepreneurship, etc. Registration is free of charge for master and PhD students from the UGent.


The OPINNO BioBizz Café in Ghent is supported by KBC Start-it and Hudson.
