In Spring 2016, we launched our first Synapse Connect event. During Synapse Connect UK ‘16, a large group of ambitious and competent students were welcomed into the Life Science milieu of one of the most prominent Life Science clusters in Europe, the Cambridge/London area. This successful event was filled with networking events and interactions among our participants, British university students, and corporate representatives, and has also led to a strong professional connection among the Danish participants. Hence, this Connect trip has become the first of a new annual tradition!

In April 2016, Synapse brought 40 ambitious and competent Master students, PhD students, and newly graduates to the Life Science clusters of Cambridge and London. In 5 intense days of visiting and networking with company professionals, participants became familiar with the newest knowledge in the fields of cancer immunotherapy, pharmacological research, alternative job opportunities, recruitment tactics for new graduates, and the legal background of law firms in the Life Sciences. Furthermore, students were invited to attend a Formal Hall dinner in one of the oldest houses of University of Cambridge along with professors and students of their leading entrepreneurial degree, Master of Bioscience Enterprise.
The 2016 visit has not only established new contacts within international companies and associated Danish branches, but has also created a strong network among the brilliant and top motivated Danish participants, who are all pursuing a career in tomorrow’s leading Life Science industry.
