Welcome to the website of BioContact e.V.!
Our association, founded by PhD students in 2000, organizes CONTACT, one of the most important job fairs in the Rhine-Neckar region for life sciences, i.e. biology, chemistry, physics, medicine, pharmacy, and others. The CONTACT fair takes place every year at the Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum (German Cancer Research Center, or DKFZ) in Heidelberg. Due to the current COVID-19 situation the CONTACT2021 will take place for the first time as an online job fair.
CONTACT which has more than 1,500 visitors every year provides young scientists interested in a life science career with opportunities to gather information about companies and start-ups in the fields of biotechnology, pharmacy, management consulting, and publishing and to meet their representatives in order to find out about the entry possibilities they offer. In addition, the volunteer members of BioContact collaborate with enterprises to organize information evenings and workshops several times a year where individual companies can personally present themselves to an interested public (“In CONTACT with”).
Check out our website for any information about our association and the events we organize, especially our CONTACT job fair.
The CONTACT2021 will take place on 28th April 2021 in an online format. We look forward to meeting you there!
