SmB BBQ June 2022
Thursday the 23rd
No lockdown or measures this year! Which means we can go ahead with our BBQ in June!
Networking, catching-up with colleagues or (old) classmates, matching for jobs or internships: we will be doing it all again!
Made possible by: Science Based Business (Leiden University), LEH, Baseclear
Low-key and easy mingling
Find who you'd like to speak to easily and casually
Catch-up with old classmates, SmB regulars and/or get to know SBB alumni, researchers and business representatives from in and around the Leiden Bio Science Park.
Looking for an internship? Job? An intern or new colleague? Just networking? We will provide stickers for you to quickly find what and you are looking for!
Good food & drinks for optimal results
by our trusted caterers
To mingle with optimal results you need fuel of course! A filled belly and hydrated body will make you have no reason to leave an interesting or useful conversation. We'd like you to get the most out of tonight.
Make sure you get enough to get you through the SmB-less July!
People seeking speakers
armed with good content
We would like to help you find your match, every month. And as always, we try to do this with speakers that can excite you with what they do, not only how they do it. By the actual scientists and science based business professionals, ideally in the form of SBB alumni: to give you a good idea of where science based business students can end up and what awesome stuff they do. Or in the form of the 'end bosses'. ;)
🔈 Microbial genomics at Baseclear after SBB
Patrick Koning (Head of Marketing & SBB alumnus)
The potential of microorganisms to solve many issues facing the modern world is huge and largely undiscovered. Global problems ranging from antibiotic resistance and human disease, to poor crop yields and climate change, are impacted by microbes. For years, relatively little was known about the often invisible world of microorganisms. However, new DNA technologies have provided tools to really see what is happening inside microbes and their communities. This allows us to unravel the interactions between microorganisms and their environment. By learning to understand the world of microbes, we can unlock their potential to improve our quality of life.
🔈 A decade of Science meets Business
Unfortunately we have missed two years due to COVID, but that doesn't change the fact that Foundation Science meets Business held its first Cafe, created and hosted by Christiaan van Gorkum, 10 years ago this month! We'd like to share all the cool things that we have done through the years, thank you for your enthusiasm and look towards the future! Cheers.
🎲 Play a contagious game
Want to engage with people in another way? Play a game of Immunowars! Made by Leiden based science students.
"Infect Your Friends in ImmunoWars ‘The Most Infectious Card Game’ is a highly strategic game based on science, medicine, and real world monsters called ‘viruses and bacteria’. The game is a mixture of dark humor, entertainment, cool visual content, unique mechanics, and amazing educational value. It is played by 2-6 players from which only one can be the last survivor."
Let us know if you'll be there!
