Network with Experts: Top Life Science Industry organisations to Join

Posted Jul 12, 2021

As a contractor it is important to stay up to speed with the latest industry trends and new technologies to increase your knowledge and gain access to the best Life Science project opportunities! We have compiled a list of Life Science Industry Organisation’s and a reason to join.

As part of LSC’s Consultant Success Programme, we provide advice to contractors on professional networking and training opportunities that will benefit your career and keep your skills up to date in the sector.

Joining an industry body is one great way to do this with the benefit of networking with like-minded Life Science professionals. With annual membership fees starting from as little as €100 and discounts available for new members and young professionals this doesn’t require a large financial investment!

Here at LSC we have always recognized the value and importance of industry bodies. Since our founding 17 years ago we have actively engaged, supported and volunteered with industry bodies as Life Science industry professionals, event organisers and committee members.
