"INSPIRE THEM YOUNG" INITIATIVE FOR IMPROVED ACCESS TO FUTURE LIFE SCIENCE LEADERSHIP TALENT
A study conducted by Albright Partners A/S (May/June 2018) with more than 100 participating Senior Executives from the Life Science industry in Denmark revealed that ”insufficient access to talent” is perceived to be among the biggest barriers to future growth. The importance of educating more skilled professionals within the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) – and especially within nature- and medical science – can therefore not be stressed enough.
The ability to impact the younger generation and students – already from primary school through to high school – is key to building a future pipeline of skilled STEM candidates and leadership talent that will bridge the talent- and capability gaps threatening the Life Science industry. The “Inspire Them Young” initiative addresses this very issue by supporting initiatives that motivate and inspire younger generations to pursue academic and leadership tracks in line with the future capability needs within pharma, biotech, medtech and life sciences.
THE AMBITION OF THE "INSPIRE THEM YOUNG" INITIATIVE
The “Inspire them young” initiative includes the following three key activities:
1. Promoting investigation and inquiry-based science teaching in primary- and high schools
Inspired by the Nobel Prize winner Georges Charpak, the ”Inspire Them Young” initiative promotes investigation and inquiry-based science teaching in primary schools and in high schools. The approach will ensure improved student learning and motivation through increased student/teacher interaction and a unique combination of tactile and visualisation tools and processes.
2. Fueling leadership aspirations among younger Life Science professionals
With the ambition of contributing to the development of the next generation of leaders, the "Inspire Them Young" initiative support inspirational initiatives that promote the pursuit of a leadership track among young Life Science talent.
3. Building a bridge between academia and the Life Science industry
Supporting initiatives that create a bond between academia and the Life Science industry.
