Presentation and goals

Consecutively to a 4 years training in biological sciences at the University the students beneficiate of a 1 year training in trading. They learn how to promote the scientific solutions which are proposed by French or foreign companies to their clients and users in the domains of health, environment, chemistry and in an international context. The students are trained :

1) To understand the scientific activities of the clients (which are mainly laboratories)

2) To explain and propose the scientific and technical information to the various partners of the sale and purchasing chain (scientists ; users ; persons in charge of purchases ; quality controllers …)

They thus need to be trained in commercial communication in order to be able to listen, ask questions and provide adequate solutions ; promote their company on the internet; adapt the markets acquisition strategies to various cultures and countries. The first year of the Lab science trading” master program (Molecular and cellular biology program) is meant to :

  • Introduce the students to their specific master 2nd year's program by offering them specialized courses (semester 8)
  • Introduce the students to a research project, from its conception to its experimental undertaking and up to the report of the obtained results by an oral presentation as well as a written report (module of 18 ECTS during the semester 7 ; internship of 2 months in a research laboratory or in a R&D laboratory from a private company)
