The NJF of Sweden is now organising and hosting webinars focused on a variety of topics and issues affecting Early Career Researchers. In addition to providing up to date information on highly topical themes, we hope that these webinars will help serve to bring together research academics from throughout Sweden. Additionally, we will also be highlighting webinars hosted by our local member faculties wishing to reach out to their fellow research academics. If you have ideas for webinars that NJF should hold, or would like share an already planned event with the NJF member universities, please contact us!
Fall of 2020
We are currently organising two new webinar series to be held in the fall academic term. The topics for these two series are:
- Social Media and Science Communication
To kick off the academic year, we are inviting academics with social media experience of their own, to share their tips and reflections on using a range of internet tools – blogs, twitter, videos, podcasts and more.
- Improving research culture – proposals & discussions from the science community
As a lead up to our 2020 NJF conference, we are inviting attendees of the Danish Diabetes Academy Winter School to discuss with us the conference’s survey. Their published article analysed the responses of 200 international researchers, with challenging questions, such as:
“What does succeed mean?”
“What is good science these days”
“How do we survive in this hyper-competitive environment.”
Their editorial summarised the collective responses to these questions into 5 challenge areas, and associated proposed solutions. This webinar series will present, discuss, and reflect on each of these challenge areas in turn.
We are continuing to plan for future seminars and activities, so please reach out to us with your own ideas, and follow us on twitter. Also, navigate over to the NJF Conference tab to stay updated on our plans for our exciting autumn 2020 event.
