Industry Talk Series
The Steering Group of the Industry Network is organizing a series of talks addressing the experiences of Industry Professionals. We would like to represent all kind of job positions, from biologists to project managers and business developers, but also independent professionals who launched their own business.
Mission and Vision
The Steering Group for the iGEM Industry Network Steering was established in 2019 with the main focus on establishing a strong iGEM Industry alumni network. We aim to support our wide community by providing a platform for networking and personal development.
We have two main aspirations in the Industry Network Steering group. Firstly, we want to promote the effective communication between iGEMers & iGEM Alumni. Secondly, we aim to build a consolidated, renowned and self-growing Industry Alumni Network We would like this to be reflected in a high number of job positions and internships assigned to iGEMers all over the world.
We would like the Steering Group to have an impact on how the iGEM community is perceived within the industry. The incorporation of iGEM alumni with experience and Synthetic Biology knowledge into the industry will lead to a better perception of the community and consequently will increase industries’ interest in people with an iGEM background. We think that networking is a key aspect of every professional career, thus we dedicate our efforts towards enhancing the relationships between the iGEM community and the industry.
