Ours truly is the great age of technology. Indiana Lee proposes 7 things you should know before embarking on your STEM career.
With university and other research institutions closed, researchers have had their research interrupted: from slight readjustments to work from home to complete project interruptions that cause delays.
Throughout graduate studies, it is important to maintain a good relationship with your supervisor, while doing impactful publishing, building up a network to leverage your work, and a myriad of other small things that are vital for your future career.
In this Q&A we talk to Dr Sam Illingworth and Dr Paul Wake from Manchester Metropolitan University, about the card game that they have made to develop dialogue around climate change and heat decarbonisation.
The coming years will see the market for electronic devices and logic boards grow by additional leaps and bounds. But as electronics and semiconductors infiltrate new industries and products, designers and manufacturers are always on the hunt for better and smarter ways to manufacture these vital components.
Drought and water scarcity are impacting the agricultural industry in Europe, and farmers may need to change their tactics to adapt to the changing climate.
The truth about the scientific field is it’s segregated, disjointed and impersonal. We spend years in higher education to end up widely on our own to figure out our career path. We can cold call or blindly send emails in hopes of connecting to someone Read more […]
The balance between professional and personal life plays a key role for successful careers of European researchers, especially for women scientists. As far as employment and reconciliation of work and life are concerned, female employment rates remain low especially in Southern Europe and East Europe and in general even more for women with low education. Antidiscrimination laws have been adopted, but gender gaps are still large. Lack of child care services and care facilities for the elderly combined with rigid work arrangements make it hard to reconcile work and family life.
The Wild Card initiative, launched this month by EIT Health, seeks to engage the biggest and brightest minds in implementing ground-breaking and high-risk ideas in healthcare. The two areas of focus for 2018 are: application of artificial intelligence and big data to diagnostics and finding non-pharmaceutical solutions to antibiotic resistance. In this inspired opinion piece, Jan-Philipp Beck, COO at EIT Health, who is based in Munich, Germany, tells us about the main challenges ahead to find solutions to these issues.
EuroScientist celebrates International Women’s Day 2017 by covering a study giving food for thought on the issue of work/life balance for career scientists. Germany has traditionally looked down on mothers pursuing their career in the immediate few years after their children were born. However, a new survey by the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW) shows that there are several key factors influencing researchers to stay in academia. These include the ability to self-determine their working hours, a flexible workplace and the existence of a long-term professional perspective. Clearly, respondents to the survey from both genders appear to strive for a better work/life balance. But it may take another generation for old habits to die.
Despite your glass of Champagne, unfortunately you cannot forget the extreme difficulties we are facing to. Mind elevation is strongly required! Fear has become a common factor in most of our societies. Conflicts are running everywhere revealing Read more […]
Research requires infrastructure. A structure for traceability, accuracy, accountability and acknowledgement. But how easy is it really to exactly replicate a scientific experiment by just reading the published result?
