Established in 2019 the BeNeLux & France (BNLF) Local Chapter aims to bring together scientists in the fields of drug delivery and nanomedicine located in Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and France. We stimulate scientific knowledge exchange and collaborations between industrial and academic experts, provide networks and represent at a local level the Controlled Release Society Inc., USA (CRS), a worldwide association in the field of delivery of science and technology.
Supported by the CRS, we contribute to local meetings and conferences, keep our members up to date with the news in the field and provide a platform to share job opportunities and scientific content. We are also focusing on our Early Career Scientists and boosting their network, professional development, creating exchange and mentorship programs.
Mentorship Program: call for mentors and mentees
One of the Chapter’s main goals is to provide a network and support for early career scientists. Currently, the Early Career Scientist Committee (ECSC) of the Chapter is setting up a Mentorship Program.
The Mentorship Program’s aim is to match early career scientists with more senior researchers who can provide career guidance. While these mentors can be established scientists from academia or industry, they can also be postdoctoral researchers who can share their experience in taking the next step following the completion of their PhD.
The Chapter opens the first call for our members who would like to join the program as a mentors or mentees. To apply please contact us via email@example.com. Deadline for mentees applications is December 15th 2019.
As a member of our Chapter you will receive the latest news, networking & collaboration opportunities, information about local and international conferences & exhibitions, jobs and recently published articles in the field of drug delivery and release.
