Open Science session at Eurodoc 2010 is all set up for tomorrow, March 12

Eurodoc2010 - Details on the conference and the session itself are available via the session's web page. Most of the session will make use of an Etherpad-based clickstream (embedded below) but there will also be some slides, embedded further below, and a discussion group at Friendfeed, embedded at the bottom of this page.

Forschung heute - gemeinsam geht es besser

such is the title (roughly: "Research today - collaboratively, it works better") of a talk I am going to give in Munich tomorrow at a workshop on networking amongst young researchers in Germany. My presentation is embedded below. It can be annotated here.

Sought: Candidates for European Young Researchers' Award

I think that awards should start to recognize that research is a collaborative endeavour and not always single out individuals. At the Early Career Stage that this award targets, it is practically impossible to differentiate between the top 10% (or so) of candidates -- what criteria would you use when the only simple metrics available are at the level of journals and articles and most of the few pieces published in there have been the work of many, including the candidate? Web-native metrics like karma systems (e.g.

Eurodoc 2010 - Stocktaking and Prospects: Doctoral Training and Research – the Link between Europen Higher Education and European Research Areas

The annual conference of Eurodoc, the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers provides a unique framework for young researchers to meet with European political and economical leaders and to engage in fruitful discussions on the construction of the European Research and Higher Education Areas. The conference is open for the general public, in particular all young researchers and policy makers are encouraged to participate.

Eurodoc 2010 will be embedded in a series of high-level events around the Bologna-Process Ministerial Summit. 150 to 200 young researchers and policy makers from more than 32 European countries are expected come to Vienna to engage in fruitful discussions and to work on recommendations for the future of research training beyond 2010.

ESOF 2010 Proposal on Science 2.0

Next Euroscience Open Forum will take place on 2 to 7 of July, 2010 in Torino, Italy. I think it is the ideal forum to talk also about new science communciation tools.

That why I am proposing here a session on young researchers and Science 2.0. for the Career Programme of ESOF 2010.

We still need include names of interested experts to join the discussions with Second Life, Friendfeed or similar services in the proposal. The deadline for proposals for ESOF is September, 30.

The exact time within the frame of 2-7. July 2010 will be fixed later, taking into account the availabilities of the participants. It will be an one hour session. So is anybody interested to join the discussions?

We cordially invite you to come to the Eurodoc Workshop on "Valorisation of the Doctorate" on November 19 from 14-19h.

The workshop continues Eurodoc's efforts to strengthen the recognition of doctoral degrees in the private and public sectors as much as in academia. This with a view to easing transsectorial mobility and raising awareness among employers of the particular skills doctoral graduates have.

The workshop will also address mentoring as a way of improving doctoral graduates' integration and competitive position in the private and public sectors as much as in academia, as part of the ongoing work on a Eurodoc mentoring policy. A parallel session will be dedicated to the Eurodoc Survey project.

Please see the preliminary programme
for more information. To register, please send an email to before 14/11/2008
