BioWednesday London: Staffing the 21st Century Life Science R&D Industry

18:00 - 21:00 Wednesday 19 June 2019


For those involved in biomedical research, whether Academia, venture backed biotech SME, technical service provider or large Pharma the impact arising from their research spend is always a factor of the quality of the staff they can employ. To this end, how can alignment be achieved across all parties when it comes to training, experience, recruitment, career development and outcomes? The panel at this event will discuss:


  • What are the skills gaps experienced by recruiting organisations?
  • How do the available training opportunities fit the need, including academic training, apprenticeships and student placements?
  • Are commercial awareness and entrepreneurship training mutually exclusive in Life Sciences?
  • Do Life Science entrepreneurs make good employees?
