Science2Start – ideas competition

In our annual Science2Start-ideas competition young scientists and founders from the Life Sciences sector in the STERN BioRegion are called on to put their business idea to the test. All submitted sketches of ideas are tested for their academic excellence and their economic potential. As a participant you will always receive a professionally sound feedback from the panel of experts. The top three concepts submitted will receive a monetary prize and are honored at a ceremony and in the presence of numerous decision-makers from industry, research, policy and the financial sector.

„I completed my master’s degree in biology at the University of Hohenheim. During my internship at Greiner Bio-One GmbH, I gained a working knowledge of the operations of the various departments in the company. This gave me an understanding of the entire development process of products for specific applications in medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnological research and industry. Afterwards, I wrote my thesis at the Institute for Membrane Physiology in collaboration with Greiner Bio-One GmbH. During this time, I characterised magnetic nanoparticles, which represent a model system for creating 3D cell cultures, and investigated their influence on cellular parameters. Since February 2018, I have been working at BioRegio STERN Management GmbH, where I support the project management team on national projects.“
