Organizing the EURAXESS Conference in 2017 is a wonderful task to work on. But can be mindboggling at times as well. There are so many things that could fit into the programme, which should be in the programme, which are wonderful nice to haves, or provide very good opportunities.
The Conference is a succesful place to network with your European colleagues, and to be inspired both by your colleagues and by the speakers and workshops.
Items which we are trying to add to the programme are:
- sharing expertise,
- sharing outcomes from EURAXESS projects such as TOP3, REFLEX and PIPERS,
- learning more about the different aspects of EURAXESS and their impact and opportunities (Links Officers, new portal, etc),
- finding out more about how career development fits into the EURAXESS portfolio and if and how you can be active on this topic,
- gaining knowledge on upcoming challenges (Gender, Diversity, Research integrity
But the Conference only lasts for two days (half day, full day, half day), so how to put all of this in there?
Well, it has to be said that the European Commission is very good in structuring this process and bringing together the wishes of many.
For now the programme is still in progress. When we know more, you can find out about it here.
