This event, held online from 12:00 to 14:00 CET on Oct. 25th, is brought to you by the ENLIGHT team working on the PROMOTION OF EARLY CAREER DEVELOPMENT & IMPROVE RESEARCHER ASSESSMENT section of the ENLIGHT-RISE project.
One of the key engagements of ENLIGHT is to create a balanced network across different social, economic and geographic areas in Europe, with careful attention to the way expertise and opportunities are shared across the network, and to develop a supportive structure for talent development, career guidance, and business ideas.
In this online workshop we will hear from two researchers who will share their experience of networking and how it has helped them build professional networks and research collaborations.
