The Eurodoc 2015 conference will take place in Cluj-Napoca (Romania), between April 27th and 28th.
The theme for this year's conference is "Empowering Young Researchers in Europe: Engagement and Participation", and it will bring together representatives from several NGOs across Europe to discuss what they are doing to support early stage researchers.
Among others, Eurodoc member organizations will present the work they are doing on behalf of and for early stage researchers. The presentations will focus on their priorities, initiatives and cooperation with relevant stakeholders in the national higher education and research systems.
Please see also the conference programme here.
Apart from Eurodoc member organizations, researchers, members of other NGOs and all those interested in the topic are most welcome to attend the conference. Please feel free to forward this email also to other interested individuals or organizations.
After a first contribution of LuxDoc on the career perspectives of young researchers (article in forum October 2013 by Anne Franziskus, Conny Reichling and Lucie Waltzer), Christiane Kirsch and Lukas Graf have recently published an article, entitled "Precarious Perspectives for Young Researchers: Luxembourg's Labor Law Restricts Development of Knowledge Society", in "forum" (January 2015, edition 347, pp. 17-19).
An additional article on the career perspectives of young researchers in Luxembourg was published by Christiane Kirsch and Lukas Graf in Luxemburger Wort on February 7, 2015. You can download it here.
