Forum am Deutschen Museum, Room "Selene"

Type of activity: Workshop
Target audience: Young Scientist Community (Graduate Students, Post-Docs, members of associations of PhD students, young researchers)

Name of Organiser: Agnieszka Majcher-Teleon

Co-organiser 1: Victoria Mendizabal

The workshop will focus on setting the common framework for co-operation between young researchers worldwide. Such co-operation should be established to face such problems as how to: influence research policies on a global scale; foster research co-operation; facilitate careers in science for young scientists; encourage international mobility; and facilitate the emergence and sharing of scientific knowledge to reduce the gap between developed and less developed countries. The workshop will also be an opportunity to discuss running a survey on young researchers worldwide to learn more about their current status, working conditions, career prospects and career barriers.
