Launch of the second cohort of the Life Sciences Entrepreneurship Development Program: IRICoR renews its participation with the Scholarship Competition – Entrepreneurship in Oncology (CEO)
Montréal, February 25, 2019 – On February 21st, in Montréal, a launch cocktail took place for the second cohort of the Life Sciences Entrepreneurship Development Program, where IRICoR and the Oncopole announced the awarding of 9 scholarships to graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the field of oncology research.
For a second year, IRICoR and the Oncopole joined forces to support the next generation of scientists through the Scholarship Competition – Entrepreneurship in Oncology (CEO). They offer opportunities to young scientists to take part in the Life Sciences Entrepreneurship Development Program. This practical and immersive program, divided into 10 intensive two-day modules, includes more than 150 hours of strategic content. The first edition proved to be a real success with participating students.
For a second year in a row, IRICoR is proud to join the efforts deployed by Montréal InVivo, Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Pharmacy and Concordia University’s John Molson Executive Centre, by proposing a day focused on “Drug Development in Oncology” to further develop the formula.
At the launch party of the 2nd cohort of the Program, Nadine Beauger, IRICoR’s Chief Executive Officer, congratulated the recipients of the CEO scholarships. She was delighted that IRICoR is contributing tangibly to the training of the next generation of scientists. “The development of entrepreneurial skills is at the heart of the future of our sector. I am convinced that the 19 participants of this new cohort will benefit from the unique expertise available to them and that it will enable them to be truly sensitized to the needs and issues of the field.”
