What is BIOEducation?
Our BIOEducation program provides specific technical and business training that is tailored to the needs of our clients.
Participants can choose from a wide variety of courses on business and technical competences that are important for future success.
Participants can acquire a better understanding of the industry and gain basic and specialised knowledge in areas such as innovation, market analysis, definition of business strategies, financing, legal affairs, management and negotiation skills.
All this know-how is essential for the successful development of business projects.
BIOCentre organises workshops, seminars and hands-on training for groups and individuals. Our experienced researchers organise training courses in collaboration with leading experts from academia and the industry.
We aim to meet our client’s specific needs, education level and schedule.
