A network of Early Career Investigators (ECIs) was created within HERALD and our kick-off event will take place at the EuroCVD-BalticALD conference in Linköping, Sweden on June 11-14, 2017. In this news item, we would like to announce our second event on “Career Development”, which will be a stand-alone lunch-to-lunch meeting in Ghent, Belgium on August 28-29, 2017. One of the goals is to connect with peers and exchange ideas and experiences on the challenges that come with establishing ourselves as a (prospective) research group leader. We have also invited some successful and established leaders in the field who will share their experiences and give advices on how to build a successful career path to full research independency: Prof. Julien Bachmann (Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU)), Prof. Christophe Detavernier (Ghent University), Prof. Erwin Kessels (Eindhoven University of Technology) and Prof. Markku Leskelä (University of Helsinki).
Interested in this event? Please, save the date! More information and online registration will soon be available on http://www.cocoon.ugent.be/workshop-heraldeci.
