Make a connection

Advident regularly organizes activities to ensure that students and organizations can come into contact with each other.

Career events

Advident organizes events where students and employers can talk to each other. As a true career fair focused on advice about the life sciences, this is the ideal place to find an internship or workplace for in the future. If you want something different than doing research, then make sure you are present during these events!

Advident Challenges

An Advident Challenges is a great way to discover whether giving advice is something for you. Within a single evening, you and your team solve a realistic question from a real client. You usually do this on location at the client so that you get to know the organization from the inside. You can win great prizes if you win, prove yourself to potential employers and you get free dinner!
