26.08.2020 18:00 | SHS Public

Organizer: Swiss Healthcare Startups
Venue: Hôtel Aquatis
Contact for registration:

The Covid-19 pandemic has made it visible more clearly than ever before. A well functioning healthcare sector is vital for the well being of our economy and societies at large. Propelling the much-needed transformation from a volume-based to a value-based healthcare model will be paramount to success. What if the top ‘5P’ health care leaders would rally behind a common purpose, such as increasing the quality of health care delivery? What if PATIENTSPROVIDERSPHARMAPAYERS, and POLICYMAKERS would all join forces and work on sustainable solutions together? History has shown over and over again that crises can forge reimagination. There is no better time to act than now. Join us for a discussion at the next edition of SHS Public on what it would take to go on this transformative journey together in Switzerland.

29.10.2020 17:00 | Making the transition to Industry: Interpreting Job Descriptions

Organizer: Randstad and Skills for Scientists
Venue: Building F, CLE

Are you looking to make the next step in your career? Do job descriptions for open positions intimidate or confuse you? Would you like to understand what recruiters really want? This HBA event brings together the academic and corporate industries to look at how candidates can best position themselves by showing you where you have applicable skills and experience that may not appear to be immediately obvious. We will help you to interpret common requirements and build your confidence to apply for that role you may have been hesitating about.

This workshop will be particularly useful for those looking to transition from academia to industry, but all local professionals will find it motivating to bring along their CVs to push themselves for that future opportunity. We also encourage managers to attend to better understand how they can position their job openings and invite a larger, more diverse pool of applications.

Les nouvelles dimensions de l’innovation

Venez partager une vision, des expériences et enrichir votre réseau!

Les entreprises sont confrontées à des changements toujours plus rapides. La digitalisation induit-elle forcément une rupture? Ou faut-il plutôt viser une amélioration progressive des processus et des produits? De quelles compétences et de quels talents a-t-on besoin pour relever ces défis? Comment faire rimer durabilité et profitabilité? Autant de questions qui seront le fil rouge de cette troisième édition de FORWARD. Avec cette conviction : rien ne vaut des exemples concrets pour nourrir la réflexion.
