If I might not continue in academia or if I am actually sure I will not pursue an academic career which other career paths would be interesting for me? Which companies would be relevant and would my competences be relevant for them? These are some of the questions that many PhDs and Postdocs are asking themselves and these questions are the reason for Science for Society and its activities.
AAU Students and PhDs end up in many interesting and exiting positions in the public sector and in private companies. However, some of them also end up making it as entrepreneurs. The Science for Society project aims to create more awareness among PhDs and Postdocs about the possibility of pursuing a career within entrepreneurship and hence tries to create interesting events focusing on exactly this topic.
