Scientists’ Careers Inside and Outside the University

June 27-28, 2016

Venue: Science Park, University of Kassel, Germany

 

The international workshop „Scientists‘ Careers Inside and Outside the University“ is co-organized by the Economic Policy Research Group of the University of Kassel and INCHER Kassel. It is organized as part of the project WISKIDZ (“Wissenschaftliche Karrieredynamiken in Deutschland im Zeitablauf” funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). Since October 2013, members of the research group have been working on the project, analyzing influences on young researchers’ success inside and outside academia. This workshop serves as a means to facilitate discussion with other experts in the field. We were able to attract high-ranking scientists from Europe and the USA as speakers and would be happy about your interest and participation. Please feel free to contact Rasmus Bode if you wish to participate (rbode@uni-kassel.de).
