On behalf ofthe ENABLE Organisators (received by Isabella Friis Jørgensen)
We wish to invite you to the inaugural ENABLE conference that will take place in Copenhagen from the 7th to the 9th November 2018. ENABLE is the first European symposium organized by, and for, PhD students and Postdocs. This initiative seeks to promote excellence in the biomedical sciences in Europe by supporting young researchers, strengthening scientific careers, and bringing biomedicine closer to society. To achieve this, ENABLE is organized in three main pillars:
Scientific Symposium (...), Career day (...), Outreach activities (...)
The ENABLE conference is about opening academia from within to promote a new research culture through a real exchange between young scientists, renowned researchers, industry professionals and citizens. Moreover, unlike other conferences, PhD students and postdoctoral fellows are in charge of the event as a way ofempowering them in choosing their future. This initiative has been cofunded by the European Commission led by four research institutes (IRB Barcelona, RIMLS, NNF CPR, SEMM) and a science communication agency (Scienseed). Registration is now open. Early bird discounts are available until July 31. A considerable number of travel grants are available for eligible participants who actively participate via poster presentation, short talk or micro talk. The deadline to apply for travel grants is June 15. For more information, you can watch the ENABLE presentation video, visit our website or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Let’s spread the word to ENABLE the change!
