Online Talk France

Date/Time: 4 September 2020, 15.00-16.00 CEST

The main goals of the event:

  • Share concrete examples of how the target group can obtain support for their research in and outside of academia: what works, what doesn’t work?
  • Discuss challenges (short and long-term) and potential ways to overcome them: what is needed (beyond funding)?
  • Propose potential actions and initiatives at national and European level that could help researchers and organisations/institutions willing to support them: how to cooperate?
  • Reflect on “alternative” pathways and support for the target group beyond the “mainstream” support structures: small-scale actions that count?
