Alternatives to Academia Roundtable 2018

· London




Last Saturday 24th of March, the London Constituency celebrated the 3rd Alternatives to Academia Roundtable, the flagship event of the Constituency that aims to provide tips and suggestions to anyone who wants to explore what lays beyond the “Academia River”.

This year, the event gathered an amazing group of five speakers who, with humor and friendliness, explained their journey from the research environment to their current job position, ranging from medical writer to game programmer. The event was extraordinarily well received, with very exciting Q&A section and a lot of time for networking and having a chat with the speakers with a drink.
