Summer Program in Germany for Students Interested in Biotechnology & Innovation by Kelly Cuene

The Justus Liebig University in Giessen, Germany is offering a summer program for undergraduate students, graduate students, and young researchers from all over the world studying economics and management, natural sciences, and law.  The program is specifically tailored to students interested in learning more about biotechnology industry, intellectual property dynamics, and the role of venture capital and other forms of financing in funding innovative companies in the sector.

The program combines high-quality teaching with a wide range of cultural and social activities. In addition to the academic courses, two field trips to international biotechnology companies and a three- day trip to Munich will add a more hands-on element to class teaching. Furthermore, students will attend German language courses on different levels. Recreational excursions during the weekends will show students some of the most beautiful places in Germany. Above all, studying abroad will help participants broaden their horizons by bringing them closer, to foreign cultures, enabling them to interact and share their diverse experiences and – most important – it‘s fun!
