A Chief Scientific Officer (CSO) belongs to the selected C-level of a company. This consists of the chief executive officer (CEO) and other executives who are outstanding in their field.
A CSO has the task of taking a leading role in research processes. This position can be found in a university hospital, a pharmaceutical company or a health insurance company.

In the pharmaceutical industry, the requirements mean communicating current therapies or drugs to the public as well as to investors. It also means monitoring the market and keeping the company competitive in research.
Just as in a university hospital, where a CSO overlooks current research internationally and keeps it up to date. In addition, he or she oversees the monitoring of scientific processes and their coordination.
In health insurance companies, a CSO serves to review evidence-based health care services. To do this, he or she must additionally demonstrate an exceptional understanding of data analysis.
In all cases, a CSO leads a team of medical professionals, he or she coordinates and engages in ongoing education. It's a job that requires social skills without losing sight of the company's goals.
In order to also make the goals profitable, a CSO's responsibilities also include adhering to the budget plan as well as knowing regulatory requirements.
The coordination of cooperations with possibly international partners are also important. In the case of health insurers, this may include universities or government agencies. Finding the right candidate is both challenging and rewarding.
