Synopsis

Calling Undergraduates and Postgraduates - join us for the Day of Science and Careers Scotland 2016, a special event targeted at early career people. This is the perfect opportunity for early career scientists to meet with people working in the manufacturing industries (in particular the food and drink, industrial biotechnology, personal and household care industries) across Scotland, and start developing their career. An exciting and diverse range of speakers has been selected to talk about their experiences working in the industry, SMEs and research institutes. This year's event features the theme; Made in Scotland: Applied Research and Manufacturing.

There will be several networking opportunities during the day, concluding with a drinks and nibbles reception - giving an informal setting for delegates to chat to speakers and fellow delegates. All breaks will take place in the Exhibition Area so delegates can meet with potential recruiters and gain further knowledge about applying for jobs.
