BEYOND ICFO: ICFOnians & Science for a Post-COVID world

September 23rd, 2020

The Beyond ICFO annual career event brings together members of the Alumni network to showcase ways that they are applying their training in a variety of career paths. By sharing their experiences with the ICFO community, Alumni are able to introduce career options and applications of scientific training that may not be on the radar of ICFOnians who may be considering their next career move.

ICFOnians are particularly well equipped to contribute their skills in the post-COVID world, where critical thinking and analysis is imperative and creative solutions are needed to help the world function safely and efficiently. This year ICFOnians will discuss the unique ways they are contributing to manage this global crisis and its many repercussions.

The event will be held online and is open to all ICFOnians and members of the extended ICFO community.
