Bio Science Park Excursion

Since 2015, an annual excursion for master students of the Sciences faculty and the study Biomedical Sciences of Leiden University has been organised in November. During this excursion, students can get to know the companies settled in the Bio Science Park and will be informed about the many (starter) functions and career paths that are available there. The Bio Science Park Excursion of 2018 took place on the 30th of November. Last year was described in this article of University Leiden

This year we were pleased to be able to organize a day consisting of two parts. During the morning programme, we welcomed various start-up companies to tell their story and share their vision: Ocello, Probe Microscopy BV and Filterless. Furthermore, the Leiden Science Career Service organised a workshop about networking and career perspectives. After a lovely lunch provided by Dagelijks Lekker, students visited different companies settled in the Leiden Bio Science Park for innovative talks and interesting company tours. The following companies participated in the Bio Science Park Excursion of 2018:

Track 1: Ecolab & CHDR

Track 2: Batavia Biosciences & GenomeScan

Track 3: Avery Dennison & Airbus


Lastly, we would like to thank the LIC, LACDR, IBL and the Leiden Institute of Bio-medical Sciences for funding this excursion. More information on the upcoming edition of the Bio Science Park Excursion will follow this summer.
