Geo.X Career Day 2019

"Research-based job opportunities"

For scientists, the digital era promises interesting and purposeful new careers in data science, research in industry, innovation policies, research-based consulting or start-ups for designing a responsible future. But how much science is in data science, and how much academic freedom in industry research?

This career day is about considering research-based job opportunities close to academia. Experts will give you an idea how those careers can look like and what is required for a successful career move to these new fields of work. Take the opportunity to gather information, to present yourself with your skills and ideas and to network!

We provide free childcare for those attending the career day event. If you would like to use the free childcare service, please indicate it in the registration form.
