Thriving careers and sustainability: a PANEL DISCUSSION

Thursday May 18th, 11:00-12:30

Academia and industry are common career paths for the new generation of individuals working in STEM. Both provide a unique approach and contribution to economic progress, and demand a particular set of skills. What factors are relevant for career advancement in each sector? How does the partnership between them play a role in social development? What professional opportunities in the context of sustainability are currently out there? The speakers at ISGC-2017 will come together and bring their expertise to discuss answers to these and other questions pertaining to professional growth.


Prof. Rafael Luque (University of Cordoba)

Dr. Edith Norrant (UCB Pharma)

Prof. Peter Wasserscheid (Friedrich-Alexander University)
