LifeScience Academy Exchange


    Date: October 26, 2017

    Location: Cardiff


    Due to growing interest in our LifeScience Academy activity, we are holding an event on the 26th of October to bring all interested stakeholders together.

    This event will focus on the following key areas;

    • The skills agenda
    • Student placements
    • Recruitment
    • Training

    We will bring together key stakeholders in these areas including industry, universities and Welsh Government.

    Following on from a successful Special Interest Group, we want delegates to continue this conversation, talk about what developments are needed in these key areas and discuss how the MediWales network can help this.
