Saturday 9 July 2022 at 7 pm CEST, at the Paris Expo Congress Centre
This event is organized thanks to an IBRO-PERC Grant.
This event, which brings together the ALBA Network, the FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence and Young IBRO, will provide a platform for emerging scientists to collectively voice their opinion towards shaping a more diverse, equitable and inclusive culture in European neuroscience.
In the first part of the event, an ethnically diverse group of early and mid-career scientists, who are at the cusp of launching a lab or consolidating a research programme, will briefly share their formative experiences. With this background, we will expand our horizon to encompass a larger definition of diversity based on gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation, and fuel discussions with a panel comprising policymakers, scientists and funding agencies to highlight measures to increase diversity, strategies for a culture-change to advance equity, and layout concrete proposals to implement these solutions.
We encourage active involvement from the audience, the next generation stakeholders, that will catalyse the inclusive spirit of the event and reinforce the mission of the ALBA network, FKNE and YIBRO in promoting diversity and equity.
The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session until 08:30 pm.
After 08:30 pm, participants will be welcome to join the speakers at a bar close to the Paris Expo Congress Centre for some networking, drinks and snacks . The location of the bar will be communicated by email to registrants through this form. Please use this form to register for this event.
