Special Session - Career

A career in the Life Science industry is a wealth of development opportunities near science and its applications

Polish biotechnology is already more than 200 organizations that conduct innovative research that push science in Poland forward. Polish biotechnology will soon be more than 12 thousands of people involved in research and development in laboratories and the growing number of graduates of related fields, and therefore an increasing number of scientists and potential employees. Finally, Polish biotechnology is nearly a billion zlotys invested in science and a large increase in investment every year.

The Life Science industry is growing rapidly, and with them the needs of employers. Even 10 years ago, Polish scientists traveled abroad, because it was one of the few solutions and a chance for a career in science. Today it is different - Polish companies are emerging, implementing their ideas, developing products, and in order to compete on the global market, they need scientific competences that will make them global players.

Life Science in Poland is biotechnology, medical technologies, bioeconomy, food, digital health and much more. Such a large diversification of industry results in a demand for specialists in various fields - from scientists specializing in drug development, through programmers, engineers, food technologists and technology brokers. Today, a career in Life Science in Poland is hundreds of companies offering dozens of positions in various fields, and a chance for many people who want to work in science and make a difference.
