A Young Scientists' Satellite meeting to the FEBS3+ LS2 Annual Meeting 2020

A Young Scientists' Satellite meeting to the FEBS3+ LS2 Annual Meeting 2020

We are excited to host for the first time a Satellite meeting to the FEBS3+ LS2 Annual Meeting 2020, organized by and for young scientists!

This satellite event will be held in the afternoon of February 12th, 2020 (12:30-17:30).

The Young Scientist's Satellite will promote networking among young, non-professorial scientists from Switzerland, Germany and Austria, as well as between them and internationally recognized scientists. Participants will get inspired by the lecture from the invited keynote speaker, Prof. Paola Picotti (ETHZ), who will share her scientific as well as personal experience during the development of her career. The satellite aims to encourage constructive interactions between people from various life science sectors and motivate young scientists in their career development by making them part of a panel discussion.  This panel will include 4 speakers, who succeeded in their academic and non-academic careers, such as research group leaders, heads of scientific facilities, start-up creators, project managers, scientific writers and/or disseminators, etc. The discussion will guide, exchange ideas, and open new horizons to the young scientists.

Participants will also have the opportunity to present their scientific work in front of a broad audience of young scientists. Presentations will be in the format of poster and/or 3-8 min talk + 2 min questions. Talks will be selected from submitted abstracts by the chairs of the satellite.

In addition, the winner of the Prix Schläfli in Biology 2019, Rebekka Wild, will give a lecture presenting the work for which she has been awarded. The official award ceremony will take place during the LS2 Annual Meeting 2020.

To close the Satellite, a Meet&Greet apéro with the speakers of the Satellite and plenary and symposia speakers of the LS2 Annual Meeting 2020, as well as with chairs and LS2 section delegates will take place. This is an excellent opportunity for scientific exchange and networking, and it will promote the young talents by exposing them to outstanding international group leaders and encouraging their one-on-one discussions.

Registration to the Satellite is FREE and open to participants of the FEBS3+ LS2 Annual Meeting 2020!
