Innov­a­tion Cup 2021 – Great minds come together

English

Work­ing field:

The 2021 Innov­a­tion Cup in its elev­enth year, brings together a prom­ising new gen­er­a­tion of aca­demic tal­ents from life sci­ences, mater­ial sci­ences, data sci­ences and busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion with the com­pany’s senior man­age­ment, research­ers and accom­plished retir­ees. This meet­ing of the minds is a cre­at­ive and innov­at­ive plat­form aimed at advan­cing sci­ence and tech­no­logy.
 


What’s in it for me?
 
If you are a post-gradu­ate stu­dent with an interest in the phar­ma­ceut­ical and chem­ical industry, the Innov­a­tion Cup is your chance to gain in-depth know­ledge about phar­ma­ceut­ical and chem­ical research and devel­op­ment, to net­work with top stu­dents from around the world and to build a busi­ness case together with exper­i­enced pro­fes­sion­als.

Explore job oppor­tun­it­ies at our com­pany and visit the innov­a­tion sum­mer camp near Frank­furt, Ger­many, June 26 – July 2, 2021 and take your chance to win the Innov­a­tion Cup along with EUR 20,000 with your team (EUR 5,000 for the run­ner-up team).

Options to imple­ment the best busi­ness plans will be eval­u­ated. Top per­form­ing par­ti­cipants might be offered a pos­i­tion.

 
All travel, accom­mod­a­tion and food expenses will be paid by the com­pany. In the event of travel restric­tions, the event could be held vir­tu­ally.

Who can apply:
We invite advanced stu­dents in life sci­ences, chem­istry, phys­ics, com­puter sci­ences and busi­ness admin­is­tra­tion from all over the world to apply for par­ti­cip­a­tion in the Innov­a­tion Cup. 30 stu­dents will be selec­ted:
  • Sci­ences: Post­gradu­ate stu­dents in the life, mater­ial and data sci­ences, on their way towards a PhD in bio­logy, chem­istry, medi­cine, phys­ics, biotech, bioin­form­at­ics, bio­chem­istry, phar­macy, inform­at­ics, com­puter sci­ence, data sci­ence, engin­eer­ing or related fields. Also Post Docs can apply!
  • Busi­ness: Advanced MBA stu­dents or recent MBA gradu­ates with an interest in the phar­ma­ceut­ical busi­ness and a life sci­ence back­ground.
 
The cup is not open to health­care pro­fes­sion­als.

How it works:
 
Dur­ing a one week Sum­mer Camp, 30 selec­ted post­gradu­ate stu­dents will attend in-depth present­a­tions about the phar­ma­ceut­ical and chem­ical industry given by our man­age­ment, sci­ent­ists and external experts. Par­ti­cipants will work in small teams to gen­er­ate an innov­at­ive idea that addresses a sci­entific chal­lenge and develop the idea into a busi­ness plan.

  • The team onco­logy will work on new innov­at­ive approaches for the tar­geted treat­ment of can­cer with small molecules or pro­teins.
  • The team immuno-onco­logy will work on new innov­at­ive approaches for the treat­ment of can­cer via stim­u­lat­ing the immune sys­tem and over­com­ing the immun­osup­press­ive envir­on­ment of tumors.
  • The team autoim­munity will work on new innov­at­ive approaches for the treat­ment of autoim­mune dis­eases such as e.g. Lupus.
  • The team drug dis­cov­ery tech­no­lo­gies will work on new innov­at­ive approaches to dis­cover and optim­ize new small molecu­lar drugs or new innov­at­ive approaches to design, screen or optim­ize new pro­tein drugs
  • The team digit­al­iz­a­tion will work on new innov­at­ive approaches to lever­age the power of in-silico for drug dis­cov­ery and devel­op­ment.
  • The team pan­demic threat will work on innov­at­ive approaches to fight emer­ging pan­dem­ics

Teams will receive coach­ing and guid­ance from exper­i­enced vet­er­ans of our com­pany, the Sum­mer Camp mod­er­ator and our Innov­a­tion Man­age­ment. You will learn the essen­tials about R&D within the phar­ma­ceut­ical and chem­ical industry and under­stand how products are suc­cess­fully dis­covered, developed and brought to mar­ket. You will learn to eval­u­ate your ideas from a tech­nical and busi­ness per­spect­ive and build a con­vin­cing busi­ness plan.

The teams will present their busi­ness plans to a grand jury. The jury will be com­posed of our top man­age­ment plus external con­sult­ants. The jury will select the best busi­ness plan and present the win­ning team with the Innov­a­tion Cup award and cash prize of EUR 20,000 plus EUR 5,000 for the run­ner-up. At the first day of the Innov­a­tion Cup a con­fer­ence with alumni from pre­vi­ous events will be organ­ized with ample net­work­ing oppor­tun­it­ies. Options to imple­ment the best busi­ness plans will be eval­u­ated. Top per­form­ing par­ti­cipants might be offered a pos­i­tion.
