FIMMPOD also organises monthly Career Lunches with people with interesting careers from e.g. the university, industry, funding agencies, organizations, foundations and offices and informal Coffee Breaks with Docents hosted by scientists who have recently successfully applied for the title of docent. The idea of these coffee breaks is for postdocs, senior researchers, coordinators and group leaders who have yet to apply for the title of docent to get some practical advice on how to apply and to hear about experiences, expectations and benefits regarding the docentship

In addition, FIMMPOD will advertise and encourage the participants to attend local and international career fairs and the annual EMBL career day.
