YEAR participated the Young Researchers Conference 2016 in Brussels 13th of June.

On the 13th of June, YEAR Network was represented by its chair, Clara Luj├ín, and its mobility programme responsible, Jef Bergmans, at the Young Researchers Conference 2016 organized by the Permanent Representation of the Slovak Republic to the EU together with the European Commission – DG RTD.

In this event they had the chance to discuss together with other researchers, managers and policy-makers about the barriers that young researchers face in their careers.

One of the highlight of the Slovak Presidency is to produce the “Bratislava Declaration of Young Researchers” a text to which YEAR Network is actively contributing and that will collect the aspirations of the young researchers in order to orientate the future EU policies on this point.

During the panel discussion, our chair provided feedback from both the young researchers point of view and those writing the Bratislava Declaration of young researchers that was outlined during the event and will be public in the near future
