Admission is free, but advanced booking is required.

Participating in the event will be professionals in the sciences who have pursued diverse careers, including work in university laboratories, research management, technology transfer, communications, R+D entrepreneurship and private business.

The first part runs from noon to 1 pm and speakers will offer a brief overview of their career path, explaining what they do and what led them to choose this direction. Running from 1 pm to 2 pm, the second part will offer a more informal environment in which light refreshments will be served and each speaker will respond personally to any questions or remarks made by participants.
