JGL has become a teaching institution for the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Rijeka, specifically, the new pharmaceutical medicine study programme. The company’s CEO Mislav Vučić and the Dean of the Faculty of Medicine Goran Hauser signed an agreement on cooperation between the company and the Faculty of Medicine in the field of science and research, education and professional work, as well as professional training.
“Students will be able to finish part of their practical work at JGL, which is something the Rijeka-based pharmaceutical company can offer, which the Faculty of Medicine cannot. It concerns the production of pharmaceuticals, their distribution, research and development of medicine and the quality control process”, announced Dr Hauser, adding that the intention of the future cooperation was also to have JGL employees with PhDs participate in teaching at the Faculty of Medicine, as well as offering JGL employees the opportunity to continue their education at the Faculty of Medicine.
This way we strive to actively contribute to the development of the practice of strengthening democratic inclusivity and smart specialisation, promoting innovation and combining knowledge from the academic and real sectors.
“Although we are at an early stage of cooperation, we plan to have student lectures take place at JGL, primarily those connected with the history of pharmacy and pharmaceutical equipment. Part of the exhibit at the JGL Museum of Pharmacy, which we plan to open at Svilno, will help us achieve this, while our future research and development centre with laboratories will provide students with state-of-the-art equipment.”, announced Vučić.
Up until now, JGL has been a teaching institution for the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Rijeka in the field of biotechnology and now it has also become one in the field of pharmacy.
