The perennial career dilemma: academia or industry - is there a third way?
    Friday July 13, 2012 12:15pm - 1:15pm @ Liffey Hall 1

    It is a fact well-known to HR professionals and educators worldwide: young people who wish to build a long-lasting career in life sciences always end-up facing a dilemma. Will they build a career in the academic world, or will they go into industry (big pharma or biotech alike)?

    What if this dilemma didn't exist and a flexible career-structure was possible in which researchers could move back and forth between academia and industry?


    Can we capitalize on the best of both worlds, faciliate cross-fertilization and make life-long learning a reality? Is this a model in which we should invest? 


    We have asked five young researchers to discuss this in a lunchtime session starting from their own personal perspective – in interaction with the delegates with the aim of sparking some original thinking.
