CONTACT 2022 – A great success for companies and talents in the life sciences

We are again inviting many exhibitors to CONTACT2022 on May 4th, 2022. This year the fair will take place at the DKFZ.

As every year, we will again offer an extensive lecture program with presentations by companies and external speakers.

We organize workshops in both German and English. Informing and registering in good time is worth it!

More than 25 companies from the consulting, pharmaceutical and biotech industries, among others, present themselves at CONTACT every year.

CONTACT offers an ideal opportunity to talk to company representatives personally and to get first-hand information.

In addition to the workshops during CONTACT, we also offer personal CV checks and trade fair preparation courses in advance.

On May 4th, 2022, CONTACT2022, the largest life science fair in the Rhine-Neckar region, took place successfully at the German Cancer Research Center in Heidelberg. Thanks to a particularly effective hygiene concept, the trade fair was able to take place despite the restrictions imposed by Corona and was a complete success for exhibitors and visitors.

The association BioContact e.V., which has been organizing and hosting the trade fair for over 20 years, made it possible for visitors to the trade fair to attend a hybrid event in which lectures and workshops by the exhibiting companies could be attended in the communication center of the DKFZ and simultaneously broadcast live online. Numerous visitors, including students, doctoral candidates, natural scientists and physicians, used the opportunity to get in direct contact with the companies using a time slot system and to collect information about career and entry opportunities. After a long time and many virtual trade fairs, for many companies it was the first face-to-face trade fair with direct contact with interested visitors.

In addition to the company stands and lectures, the special offer of CONTACT2022 included several workshops such as the application portfolio check, a food truck, the coffee bike and a stimulating panel discussion. Company representatives discussed the topic of “Work trends – how will the workplace and work culture change in the future?” together with the visitors. This year, the CONTACT job fair has again shown itself to be an important institution for the exchange between companies and talents in the life sciences industry.
