Young scientists with revolutionary ideas wanted

For its Annual Event on 17 April 2018 in Brussels, SwissCore is looking for four excellent young scientists (PhD candidates or 2-3 years after, from all disciplines) who are conducting research with the potential to change the world.

SwissCore is the Swiss Contact Office for European Research, Education and Innovation, co-funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation and CTI/Innosuisse.

2018 is a key year to define the future of European research and innovation. The European institutions are discussing the importance of "disruptive research and innovation" to tackle global challenges and respond to the needs of society in the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

We noticed that young scientists are often absent from political debates in Brussels, although they have a lot of brilliant ideas to share. If you are able to pitch in five minutes why and how your research can contribute to solving global challenges, are interested in "confronting" European policy makers in a debate thereafter, and want to get a unique opportunity to network with European and Swiss science, research and innovation stakeholders in Brussels, you are the person we are looking for.

We are looking forward to receiving your idea (maximum one A4 page) by 30 January 2018: Feel free to also contact us on this address for any question you might have. Travels and accommodation costs will be covered.

Do not miss this unique opportunity to make your voice heard in the heart of the European Union and contribute to shaping the future of European research and innovation.
