Online Workshop on Attractive Researcher Career Paths

16 May 2022

RUN-EU PLUS will organise an Online Workshop on Attractive Researcher Career Paths on 9 June 2022, specially developed for researchers, postgraduate students, and supervisors. 

Workshop on Attractive Researcher Career Paths

9 June 2022 • 10h00-16h00 CET • MS Teams

As a researcher, do you wish to influence and clarify your future career path?

RUN-EU PLUS aims to support our researchers in identifying clear personal career paths and to encourage intersectoral, interdisciplinary and international mobility during their research careers.

Within the RUN-EU universities, there is a variety of current researcher career path possibilities, in addition to diverse needs and offerings in researcher skills and training.

The workshop will focus on:

  • results of the RUN-EU PLUS self-audit and gap analysis of researcher career paths
  • identification of researcher skills and competencies
  • educational needs of researchers

Come meet your RUN-EU PLUS colleagues, share good practices, network and discuss critical topics and challenges regarding researcher career paths!

This event will provide you with information on European goals for researcher careers and how to strengthen research career opportunities in our RUN-EU universities. It will also improve your abilities to identify your research skills and training needs.

Prior to the workshop, you will receive the RUN-EU self-audit report on the researcher career paths developed by RUN-EU PLUS project members.
