SCIFI, "From Scientists to Innovators for Industry," empowers young life scientists to thrive in healthcare innovation. Transitioning from academia to pharma and medtech is challenging, but SCIFI offers real-life case learning and mentorship. With two tracks, the Full and Light Programs, both spanning three months, participants like Tomáš Pavlů and Joao Victor Cabral from the Czech Republic share their backgrounds, motivations, and what they expect from this dynamic journey.
Through 7 modules and 5 bonus courses, the SCI FI programme gave young researchers the skills needed to transition and thrive as an innovator in the healthcare industry. Now that the course is over, we bring the interview with young researcher Albert Štěrba.
