During the week, you can also attend Short Courses organized by our ECS team together with other ECSs:

  • On Monday morning (8:30-10:15), join our Rep Simona Gabrielli and Giulia Consuma in How to establish and grow your scientific network. Panelists will share their experience on how to create connection. This short course is relevant to scientists who are starting to build/grow their network or want to learn more about networking in today’s scientific settings.
  • Geology 101 (Wed, 17 Apr, 12:45–13:45) will give a quick introduction to geology to non-geologists, creating connections with other geoscience topics (e.g. seismology and geodesy). The short course is organized together with G, GD and TS Divisions.
  • If you are at that stage of your career where you have any doubts about future steps, follow the short course held by Veronica Peverelli: Careers inside and outside of academia: Panel Discussion (Thu, 18 Apr, 19:00–20:00) is aimed at early career scientists and at anyone with an interest in moving from academia to industry and vice-versa.
  • On Thursday 18th (10:45–12:30 CEST) the short course Satisfaction, salary and value, organized by Veronica Peverelli with Hazel Gibson and Simon Clark will help to negotiate better employment conditions.
