IBI Lorenzini trains the young pharmacists of Camerun

19 November 2017

Contribute to the spreading of pharmaceutical culture and activities in developing countries: with this objective, Istituto Biochimico Italiano Giovanni Lorenzini has decided to celebrate its 100 years in 2018 with a competition for the awarding of 3 scholarships (of a value of 10 thousand Euro each plus the ticket to return to their own country) to young graduate students from Camerun at the Faculties of Pharmacy of the Universities of Camerino, Urbino and Roma Tor Vergata. Thanks to these scholarships, the young pharmacists will be able to return to Camerun and start a galenic pharmaceutical activity with the double objective of selling the products that they have developed and set the foundation for a first virtuous self-sustainment circuit.

The collaboration with the academic world is the result of not just the strong attention to social responsibility, but also of the desire to tangibly promote the practical formation of the students: it is for this reason that IBI Lorenzini will welcome the winners for a period of three months at their premises of Aprilia (Latina), so that they can acquire skills in pharmaceutical techniques and quality control. All this will be followed by a 9-month period at the Catholic University of Camerun, which recently instituted a Galenic Laboratory in Bamenda, thanks to funds from CEI with the 8x1000 contributions.

The winners of the scholarships will be selected by an appropriate commission consisting of an IBI representative and three university professors, one for each of the universities promoting the initiative.

“Contributing to the spreading of scientific culture and invest in young talents in such an important field as the pharmaceutical sector is part of the original mission,” explains Camilla Borghese Khevenhüller, President of IBI Lorenzini “but we do it through field training, the practical type of training, because learning within a professional framework will allow these young individuals to deeply explore the production and organisational processes, making it easier for them to acquire knowledge and skills.” 

The applications for taking part in the competition must be sent by the 31 October directly to the Personnel Office of IBI Lorenzini, at the following mail address: indicating “Bando Borse di studio” (Scholarship competition) in the object.
