Engaging in a researcher's career in the 21st century
    Thursday July 12, 2012 4:00pm - 5:30pm @ Wicklow Hall 2A

    Research, especially in Europe, never offered so many opportunities as nowadays. However, the competition for rewarding careers has never been so fierce. The economic austerity is also affecting research funding and career opportunities in some countries. As a consequence, whereas it may be exciting to engage in a research career it carries risk like research itself.

    In this session panellists will share their perception on the challenges for a scientist engaging in a research career nowadays. They will also provide clues on what they believe are the ingredients to a successful career (legal environment, education, international mobility, good networking opportunities, interdisciplinary, collaboration with businesses, pathways from academia to business, and passion for science…).

    Through their experiences, the former Marie Curie fellows will explain how the mobility fellowship helped develop their career. Each of the panellists' profiles illustrates how mobility and training can contribute to a successful career.
