Transitioning from Science to Industry - Hurdles, Pros and Cons

Dr. Karsten Berger

November 2nd, 2017


After a scientific career spanning over 10 years, in November 2014, I finally decided to leave scientific work behind and join a company. In this talk, I will describe the difficulties such a transition encompasses and focus on the knowledge I was able to transfer as well as the kind of skills I am now able to use in the company. I will also briefly discuss additional qualifications I obtained before moving to company work. Finally, I will introduce a collaboration between the company I currently work for "EFS GmbH" and the local university "Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt".
