Speedmeeting with Companies
Every year in October/November, S.V. LIFE hosts Speedmeeting with Companies at the Faculty of Applied Sciences in Delft. During this event, representatives of companies in the broad field of the life sciences will give short presentations about their companies and their respective functions. We were joined by Applikon Biotechnology, Johnson&Johnson and Genmab at the previous edition.
Five times a year S.V. LIFE visits a variety of companies and institutes in the Netherlands with a group of 30 students, varying from f.e. Sanquin Plasma Products, Nsure, BaseClear, DuPont to Wetsus and VUmc. During these excursions the students learn about the broad range of career possibilities they have as Life, Science & Technology students.
LGO Masters & Alumni Career Night
Every year LIFE and the LIFE Goes On alumni committee organize a career night where former LST students get in touch with current LST students. During this evening, several LST alumni working in different fields of the life sciences will give pitches about their career.
A first look into a company and for a company into our students is granted during the multiple lunch lectures S.V. LIFE organises. Companies get the opportunity to give a presentation of 30 minutes followed by a Q&A of 15 minutes and the audience of Life Science & Technology students can be specified for the company.
Several times a year S.V. LIFE collaborates with companies such as Xendo and Gupta Strategists to organize an case evening for 3rd year bachelor students and master students.
CDL & LIFE Career Evening
The CDL & LIFE Career Evening is a collaboration of S.V. LIFE with Chemisch Dispuut Leiden where several companies (previous edition: ExxonMobil, Gupta Strategists and Genmab) give presentations for an audience consisting of 3rd year bachelor students and master students in Life Science & Technology and Chemistry followed by networking drinks.
S.V. LIFE organizes two annual studytrips, the bachelortrip and the first year studytrip and one biennial studytrip, the mastertrip. In april the bachelor and first year studytrip took place and had Milan, Munich & Heidelberg and Cologne as the respective destinations.

Applied Sciences Connect
Since we have moved to our new building in Delft together with the Study Associations Technologisch Gezelschap and S.V.N.B. Hooke, we have joined forces together with VvTP and started a new career event, Applied Sciences Connect. On the 14th of June, a variety of companies active in the field of Biophysics, Biochemistry, Biotechnology and Life Sciences presented themselves and showed what it means to work within the field of Applied Sciences to the students of the Faculty of Applied Sciences. During this evening the attendees could participate in workshops & presentations by companies and visit the exhibition floor.
