“Since 2003, at LAB we have incorporated more than 60 interns, some of whom are currently an indispensable part of our team.”
With these words began Mª Elena Hernández, manager of Bioclínico Analytical Laboratory, her speech of thanks in the delivery of Ícaro Awards held yesterday at the University of Almeria.
In 2002, the University of Almería developed the Icaro computer application to support the University Employment Service of the University of Almería. This application has become one of the portals of Practices and Employment in the most important university field of our country.
The companies participating in this program, among which is LAB, have contributed to the employment of students and graduates. During the gala, LAB received the Icarus Insert Award, for having inserted the largest number of university students after completing their internships.
Mª Elena Hernández affirms that business practices are a powerful collaboration tool between the University and the company: “It allows us to meet students professionally and coexist with them.” Without a doubt, it is a rewarding experience for both parties – They learn from us, but also, we from them-. “
