ENABLE: Enabling Young Researchers to Pursue Careers in Biomedicine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The EU-funded ENABLE project is equipping young biomedical researchers with valuable skills and helping them to develop their careers, thereby ensuring the future health of Europe’s biomedicine sector, from research to therapy.The project’s flagship initiative is the career day during which PhD students and postdocs from all over Europe are given the opportunity to interact with professionals from different fields, to discuss career perspectives beyond the laboratory workbench. ENABLE 2018 career day will be one of the main events at the Copenhagen symposium. Activities will include career chats, workshops on career options, and a career opportunities fair. The aim is to provide participants with new skills to effectively manage their professional development. With only a few PhD students securing faculty positions, the project team believe it is important to promote alternative career options. Since another core component is public engagement, the symposia will give the young researchers an opportunity to share their knowledge with citizens in an informal atmosphere. ENABLE outreach activities include sessions with children and teenagers, panel discussions with adults focusing on scientific achievements and ethical topics, and talks in city bars.
