The General Assembly 2019 of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) is held at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) in Vienna, Austria, from 7–12 April 2019. The assembly is open to the scientists of all nations.
This conference aims to provide a platform for dialogue and exchange of best practices between ERC grantees (PIs) and the staff of the European Research Council regarding all stages of grant implementation (legal, scientific, financial, communication, open access).
Each year, the National Commission for Equal Opportunities in Science of the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport of Slovenia organises a conference on women in science on International Women’s Day.
The aim of these annual conferences is to promote organisational and cultural changes through awareness raising, education, training and the exchange of good practices in the field of gender equality. This year's conference will be held on 7 March 2019 in the premises of the Ministry of Education, Science and Sport, Ljubljana, with anticipated participation of about 80 researchers from academia as well as from the private sector. It will focus on designing an action plan to improve career opportunities for researchers at all stages of their career at research performing and funding organisations to encourage them to set long term goals and measures.
Martin Penny, ERCEA Head of Unit for Physical Sciences and Engineering, will be available to provide information about the ERC funding opportunities and answer question at the booth and at an information session. Details will follow soon.
Once again, the European Research Council will be attending the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), this time in Washington, DC. This is the world’s largest general scientific gathering, welcoming scientists, educators, policymakers, and journalists gathers to discuss cutting-edge developments in science, technology, and policy.
This event will be held as part of the Science Week at the European Parliament (5th- 7th February).
This year the Science Week will be composed of several elements; the 'Brussels Week' of the MEP-scientist pairing scheme, 'Science meets Parliaments', a joint initiative of the Joint Research Centre and the Panel for the Future of Science and Technology (STOA) to strengthen links between scientists and policy-makers at the EU, national and regional level; the European Science-Media Hub activities and the STOA-ERC event which will bring together policy-makers and ERC grantees.
The STOA-ERC event will bring Members of the European Parliament and ERC grantees together to discuss 3 topics: smart agriculture/food, CRISPR and migration/demography to underline how Europe’s future can be shaped by basic research.
Follow us on Twitter under #ERCSTOA.
The event is open to the public.
At this year’s World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the European Research Council (ERC) will bring frontier science to the discussions, represented by ERC President Prof. Jean-Pierre Bourguignon and eight stellar ERC grantees. There will also be a press conference on the "The science of healthy ageing".
