Programme Overview

Career event at Exhibition & Networking Fair: meet your future employer

The exhibition is a unique business and networking event that stimulates the synergistic exchange of experiences, ideas, innovations and research results. Students can meet future employers, entrepreneurs and young professionals.

At the exhibition & networking fair a Meet & Greet is organised with:

  • starting entrepreneurs: find out what it takes to run your own company
  • young professionals from industry about their experiences

60-second pitches by students

After each keynote session, SMEs, start-ups, PhD and MSc students will have the opportunity to present themselves in 60 seconds to an audience of around 300 to 500 people. During the lunch break, we will arrange for the ‘pitchers’ to make contact with a relevant network in the Holland Pavilion.

Workshops

Fluor Workshops for Students

    Fluor, one of our Gold sponsors, will create a workshop in which students are challenged to solve practical problems from the field. The workshops will be held at the Fluor Café.

Solving Key Challenges

Led by Peter Gommers, the project director for integrated supply chains at AkzoNobel, small groups of people will become acquainted with innovation sustainability issues by solving a related practical problem.
Pitch Workshop

Entrepreneurs, academics and consultants are often experts in their specialties, but fail to persuasively present their expertise. Moreover, in today’s time-pressed world, the pressure to pitch yourself well is getting stronger.

Pitch Your Career!

Entrepreneurs, academics and consultants are often experts in their specialties, but fail to persuasively present their expertise. Moreover, in today’s time-pressed world, the pressure to pitch yourself well is getting stronger. This training is offered by Arthur Tolsma (presentation coach).

Plenary lecture

From Molecular Computations to Continuous Pharmaceutical Manufacturing and Their Role in Shaping a Sustainable Future'

Professor Bernhardt L. Trout, Department of Chemical Engineering, MIT, Cambridge USA
The current approach to pharmaceutical development and manufacturing is unsustainable. With a focus on trial and error experimentation and batch processing they are much more expensive than they need to be and much riskier in terms of potential quality issues, delays and stock-outs. We have been working to change this paradigm with more knowledge-based approaches to development and with continuous manufacturing, both of which need to be accompanied by changes in mindset and administrative structure.

Keynotes

On Wednesday there will be 8 keynotes sessions. Renowned speakers will share their views and experiences in the field of innovation and sustainability and will inspire you to take your own steps towards essential changes.
