The Young Investigators Meeting (YIM) 2016 at EMBL, Heidelberg, on 5-6 June will be a gathering of PhD students and Post-docs from EMBL and its Nordic Nodes/partner institutes: Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland (FIMM), Centre for Molecular Medicine Norway (NCMM), Laboratory for Molecular Infection Medicine Sweden (MIMS) and Danish Research Institute of Translational Neuroscience (DANDRITE). The YIM meeting will then continue into the EMBL partnership conference “Perspectives in Translational Medicine: Personalized Medicine”, 6-8 June 2016.
Young PhD students and Post-docs will become the next generation of scientists who will lead the progress of novel scientific ideas. Moreover, good leadership requires good communication skills. Keeping this in mind, the organisers have developed a programme to bring this perspective to the forefront. The YIM aims to stimulate young scientific minds to engage in establishing better communication of their scientific work, both to the scientific as well as non-scientific community and audience.
On the first day, we will have a hands-on training session on science communication. The second day is tailored to provide an interaction session with communication experts from different fields, who will also share their career perspectives in a panel discussion.
Registration is now open. Please register here.
