Young scientists will have the opportunity to present their research in Brussels on 17 April 2018. The offer is aimed at doctoral students and postdocs (max. 3 years from doctorate) from all disciplines and whose research has the potential to contribute to solving global challenges. Wanted are persons who can explain the importance of their research in five minutes and who are not afraid to communicate with political decision-makers from Europe. 

Important decisions for the future of European research and innovation policy will be taken next year. For example, under current discussion is the significance of research and innovation to address global challenges in the context of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). However, young researchers are rarely given the opportunity to speak out in these political debates. SwissCore, the Swiss contact office for European research, innovation and education in Brussels, will therefore offer them a platform at its next annual event.

Proposals may be submitted until 30 January 2018. Details about the submission process is available on the website of the SNF.
