PharmaCamp in Bern bridges top young talent and the pharmaceutical industry. The goal of the event is to provide ambitious students, PhDs, PostDocs and recent graduates with an opportunity to showcase their creative problem-solving and presentation skills in front of the top pharma companies and give them a platform to compete with their peers. On the other hand, the companies will have a perfect opportunity to meet the most prospective young minds and their potential future coworkers/employees. 

The event consists of two parts. First part is open for public, who will have a chance to learn about new trends in pharmaceutical industry by experts from the field of personalised & precision medicine. The following talk session will be aimed at the important considerations when opening and running a biotech startup as well as the approaches of industrial companies to innovation. In the second part of the two-day event, a realistic case-challenge from pharmaceutical industry will be presented and the selected participants (registrations via the Google form in the "Apply now" button) will be divided into balanced groups. The problem solving will require multidisciplinary approach and we therefore encourage people from all natural sciences, engineering as well as business fields to apply. Participants will have time to come up with innovative solutions and prepare a presentation until the next day's afternoon, when they will have a chance to convince the expert panel that their solution is best. The winning team will be awarded with 2'000 CHF (divided between 5 team members) as well as with the eternal glory and fame.

Applications: until 31st July 2023 at 11:00 AM
