Saturday 30 August - EMBO Career Day

“Attending the career development workshops was very useful to me as I’m now at a changing point in my career. Talking to the speakers and facilitators made me aware of the possibilities, including ones outside of academia, that are available to me.”

— Adriana Goncalves, PhD student at CeMM, Vienna | participant in the EMBO Career Day 2011
