Intern (m/f) at Innovation Center



Intern (m/f) at Innovation Center - Inception Team

The Innovation Center aims to shape and build the next generation businesses through discovering and scaling the most exciting technologies and business models, between and beyond what we does today. As part of our end-to-end innovation process, the Inception Team is the interface between idea creation (Ideation) and commercialization (New Business Builder) and in doing so, supporting global project teams to shape and develop their concepts into viable businesses.


Your Role: As part of our Inception Team, you will work within an environment linking a start-up like culture to the corporate world. In your role you will need to navigate in interdisciplinary- and virtual teams while working on future technologies within life science and/or performance materials. Together with other project team members you’ll address critical points like market access, technology USPs, IP situation and business modelling to provide a holistic due diligence package enabling intrapreneurs to reach their milestones as well as value inflection points. In parallel, you will also get the opportunity to self-dependently work on internal projects, helping to shape our innovation process / ecosystem.


Are you an out-of-box thinker who likes to develop creative solutions? Maybe you already gathered some startup experience? Mastering organization and coordination of different tasks in different teams doesn't sound like a challenge to you? Are you an open-minded, easy-going and communicative person who enjoys working hands-on in an international team? Then we are looking forward to your application! 



  • Advanced student (Master or PhD) in science or engineering AND a secondary qualification in business (e.g. through business degrees or classes, extra-curricular activities and/or internships experience) or vice versa
  • Analytical competence and reliable handling of complex issues
  • Entrepreneurial mindset to identify business potential
  • Team player with self-starter mentality
  • Strong communication skills and hands-on in working on co-defined projects
  • Outstanding record of academic achievements
  • Very good written and spoken English language skills

Duration: 6 - 12 months

Please apply online with a motivational letter, your CV and relevant certificates!
