Mobility and flexibility in research - success or stress factors?


by ÖGMBT YLSA (chaired by Bianca Chichirau)

This event is dedicated to all life science students and junior researchers interested in finding out different ways to boost their career development. The session will cover several hot topics, from mobility and grant application/scholarship opportunities, research life in industry vs. academia, to strategies that should be implemented in order to improve our attitude towards failed experiments and “negative” results and to maintain an overall positive mindset.

The invited speakers will share their insights regarding all these aspects, and will provide us with useful tips on how to take advantage of all the existent tools in order to make the best decision for our career. Moreover, Q&A sessions will allow us to go into depth with any specific topic and ask all our burning questions!
