Where is the healthcare landscape going, and how should our students, all studying and focused on life science and healthcare understand this new emerging field?

 

Research & Innovation Networking Pub

4th Oct, 1730-2100, MF Aulan

This invite only event brings together academics, industry partners, programme directors, start-up founders, NGO representatives and selected students to the first ‘grassroots-led’, Research & Innovation Networking Pub. Innovation and change takes place when humans come together and talk, but you can’t force them to talk. You can however provide the platform, and make it as casual and comfortable as possible. This first ever ‘grassroots-led’ casual pub wants to provide our participants an environment to network in a relaxed setting and get to know people from outside their area of work. Could more industry-focused lectures emerge as a result? Maybe new research ideas could be sparked? We look forward with excitement!
