At Helsinn we constantly look to the future and believe that today’s young people are tomorrow’s society. For this reason we continually invest in young talents with the aim of enhancing them and giving them an opportunity. In 2014, we re-presented the Helsinn Advanced Synthesis Scholarship (already proposed between 1987-1993), which is addressed to students residing in the canton of Ticino and attending or starting a period of professional or academic training in the fields of chemistry, pharmaceutical, biology and biochemistry. In 2016, we awarded 11 students for a total value of CHF 55,000. The winners were selected based on the evaluation of the Scholarship Committee, established by Helsinn, taking into account the results.
