HERALD ECI event on Early Career Development

HERALD & ECI

The HERALD – Hooking together European research activity in Atomic Layer Deposition – COST action (MP1402) aims to structure and integrate European research activity in atomic layer deposition (ALD), bringing together existing groups, promoting young scientists and reaching out to industry and the public. In 2016, a network was formed within HERALD for Early Career Investigators (ECIs) to promote the next generation of ALD scientists and help them to establish themselves as research leaders in the ALD community. Broadening out the COST definition of ECI, the network welcomes investigators from within a year of submitting their PhD dissertation to PhD +10 years - however, these are not strict limits.

Program

In collaboration with COST action HERALD, Ghent University will host the 2nd HERALD Early Career Investigators (ECIs) Network event, which will be held on August 28-29, 2017. The aim of this lunch-to-lunch meeting is to bring together members of the network and exchange ideas and experiences on the challenges that come with establishing ourselves as a (prospective) research group leader. We have also invited some successful and established leaders in the field who will share their experiences and give advices on how to build a successful career path to full research independency. The meeting will offer opportunities for networking and discussions among the network members and invited speakers.
