New EMBO Webinar Series


The ISE Researchers' Careers Task Force has been conducting a long reflection on the organisation
of academic research in Europe, with a focus on the systemic structural changes that will be
necessary for Europe to remain an attractive place to do science, and a competitive economic and
scientific powerhouse. To facilitate a constructive discussion around these topics, ISE will be
running a series of three webinars specifically designed for policy makers, funders, universities,
international organisations, and journalists. More information about each webinar can be found at
