FutureCamp Europe: Biotech

On Friday 4th October, at the Civic Aquarium of Milan as part of the initiative of events leading up to the annual conference Women&Technologies, the third annual meeting of "FutureCamp Europe: job projects for young people" will take place: an interactive meeting, conceived and organized by the Association of Women and Technologies, aimed at young people, teachers, and parents interested in discovering and understanding how to enter and navigate the emerging professional sectors in Europe in the near future.

"FutureCamp Europe: Biotech" will take place within the first edition of the European Biotech Week: the week (from September 30th to October 6th) in which Europe will pay tribute to the 60th anniversary of the discovery of DNA, an initiative promoted by EuropaBio (European Association of Biotechnology). Assobiotec is the Italian partner of the event and the promoter of numerous initiatives throughout the national territory, aimed at promoting the role of biotechnology in improving the quality of life, including, precisely, "FutureCamp Europe".

During "FutureCamp Europe", particular attention will be given to themes related to Biotechnologies applied to the Agrofood, Health, and Industrial sectors, through the experiences and expertise of entrepreneurs, teachers, and researchers who have turned their passion into a profession. Through direct interaction and comparison with these realities, young people will be able to receive practical information and derive inspiration for the definition and construction of a professional path in line with their inclinations and the demands of the job market.

"There are two essential components of the future of Europe and our country: equality and youth - " states Gianna Martinengo, entrepreneur and president of the Women and Technologies Association - "We want to combine them in order to contribute to ferrying the current educational context towards a new interpretation of training, oriented not so much towards traditional skills and abilities but rather towards those of the future. Offering an overview of emerging professions to the "weaker" subjects of the labor market, namely young people and women, means presenting, through moments of guidance, comparison, and dialogue like this, the professions that today offer the greatest development opportunities and effectively understanding in what perspective one should place oneself regarding the choices that concern their educational and professional path."

They will bring their experience, among others, Annalisa Balloi, Sara Cantone, Daniela Jabes, Gianna Martinengo, Cinzia Menchise, Maria Luisa Nolli, Alberto Schiraldi, Elena Sgaravatti. The head hunter Patrizia Fontana will illustrate the results of the research "Not only white coats" on the most sought-after professions in emerging sectors.

On behalf of the institutions, Claudia Sorlini, Cristina Stancari, and Francesco De Sanctis will participate.
