The three previous UNICA student webinars on Pharma and Biotech Careers in Europe have been very successful, with more than 150 students and excellent speakers.

During two online sessions, the experts gave an overview of existing job opportunities in Europe and how to seize them:

  1. On 23 November 2020, we analysed the life after academia and the job opportunities in no-clinical drugs development.
  2. On 14 December 2020, we analysed the job opportunities in clinical research, marketing and medical affairs, pharmacy and biotechnologies
  3. On 25 January 2021, we showed the students how to create a personal company or start-up.
