The BIOEducation program is designed to provide 2 types of training:

  1. Business training (focused on Business development)
  2. Technical training (focused on Product development)

Business development courses will provide training and support in innovation management, business strategy, market analysis, business financing, legal issues, planning and negotiation skills.

Product development courses should enable tenants and clients to receive training and support in process development, GLP (good laboratory practice) procedures and regulatory compliance.

Professional education

Professional education provides necessary training for participants who wish to get familiarized with latest developments in selected topics, good laboratory practice (GLP) and the legal framework and compliance.
Participants will gain practical knowledge while working in sophisticated laboratories together with our teaching team, and learn about the latest analytical methods and technology solutions.

We organize and conduct our courses and seminars in collaboration with renowned universities, scientists and experts from the bioscience field. Our Professional education can be tailor-made to suit the specific need of a single participant, company or an organization.
