We know it: building your career as a young researcher is a challenging task. Expectations concerning your work are constantly increasing and target, further than your core scientific or engineering competences, many other skills like being innovative, creative; being able to work in a group or convince a public about the quality of your proposal… Already exhausted just by reading this list? No clue on how to get experience on that? Well at YEAR we answer… Challenge accepted!

We are happy to announce that the YEAR Annual Conference 2017 – from idea to collaboration will take place on 12th – 13th June in Brussels. Learn how to think out of the box! During this 2-days event, professional trainers will give you practical tips and tools for ideation, pitching as well as collaborative and innovative thinking. The whole key of the YEAR Annual Conference is to put you in a real environment so that you practice those techniques.
