Meet Valérie – Student of the Year 2016 in Life Sciences

For the 3rd time Vifor Pharma awarded the Student of the Year in Life Sciences together with Universum, the world leading employer branding organisation that also awards the TOP100 employers around the world. Each year, Vifor Pharma asks Students to submit their idea based on the year’s challenge and the winner gets a paid internship at Vifor Pharma. In 2016 the challenge was defined together with the Executive Team in Industrial Operations:

“Define a concept by which our technical experts can convert a long and boring SOP (Standard Operating Process) Instruction into a wordless SOP that can be used for Drug manufacturing in our sites.”

The 2 best concepts were selected to be presented at our Fribourg site to the executive team and the students got the chance to present themselves and their idea.

Valérie convinced us the most by creating a concept of a flexible “puzzle” that can convert an SOP into aUniversum_Awards_2016-31_Valerie wordless instruction, which has even the potential to be used with tablets. We are excited to have selected Valérie to join us for this internship. As we can see from the past, this is an excellent opportunity for both sides, our last winner Ivo is still with us and now working at Vifor Fresenius Medical Care Renal Pharma in Marketing.

Congrats again to Valérie and we are excited to welcome her soon at Vifor Pharma!
