BASF Lunch Talk
Feb. 14, 2018
Around 50 students joined us for a lunch talk by BASF, which is the largest chemical company worldwide, one of the biggest wine sellers in Germany, and much more. We hear about BASF from the head of the North American Center for Research on Advanced Materials (NORA). A recent hire informed us about the BASF Leadership Development Program which is a high-level rotational program for Ph.D. scientists. Hot lunch, branded water bottles, and yummy chocolate hearts made this talk even more enjoyable. Love goes through the stomach, especially on Valentine’s Day. Thanks BASF!
