ndividual, but also for the progress of science, because how scientists feel affects the research they do. Researching without passion is routinely assumed to infringe on its quality and novelty. As external funding directs ever more research, it is time for funders to take scientists’ emotions seriously.
By Eoin Galligan Introduction The university research sector has experienced major change over the last 10 or so years. Key funding programmes such as Horizon 2020, changed the traditional outcomes of research, with new vocabulary such as ‘impact’ Read more […]
By Ivana Kurecic and Chloe Hill What motivates scientists to engage with policymaking? As researchers, most of us entered our scientific disciplines to gain a better understanding of the world, or by our desire to contribute to society by Read more […]
This article evidences results from ESOF 2020, by having travel grantees telling their personal experiences as early-career researchers.
The International Selection Committee for EYRA 2019-2020 has selected Michael Bossetta as the recipient of the EYRAward for PhD students and Valentina Sessini as the recipient of the EYRAward for Postdocs.
The new coronavirus outbreak, which led to the global pandemic, has an impact on researchers and the progression of their work.
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.
How can patients take part in the research that directly concern them? How should they start to first interact with researchers? What incentives exist to facilitate the dialogue between researchers and patients? This article shares lessons learned during our workshop at ESOF conference in Toulouse collecting best practices from various European countries.
The FOSTER Roadmap for Implementing Open Science Training Practices in Research institutions outlines three key ways and practical actions that can taken up by Research Performing Organisations in order to support the transition towards Open Science.
In the rapidly evolving global research enterprise, new scientific and societal challenges require multidisciplinary approaches and the involvement of a higher and diverse number of stakeholders. Accordingly, researchers are increasingly required to work across disciplines, sectors and institutions at regional, national and international levels.
Researchers associations are an invaluable resource to support researchers along their career development and to foster researchers communities.
How many combinations could be imagined to bring together researchers associations and to foster researcher’s networking beyond national and discipline borders?
The session aims at collecting input as a basis for a strategy on how to systematise the collaboration between important actors in the field of research career development.
A pragmatic solution to associate citizens more closely with research is to develop training programmes associating researchers with teachers. This is exactly what the Maison pour la Science en Alsace initiative has done in France. In this opinion piece, its director Mélodie Faury explains the benefits of such an approach in getting teachers first-hand experience of what research really is about.
