This event is fully online, but future events could have components of both online and in-person participation (i.e. include physical staff mobility).

Background

The pilot CESAER Professional Week ´Boost science management´ will take place at the launch of the new EU funding programmes (early 2021) for research, education and innovation to support Knowledge & Staff Exchange amongst the EU support offices of our Members and to optimise knowledge within Members from lesser performing regions by learning from our best performing Members.

The objective is to create visibility and momentum behind staff and knowledge exchange in our association, and to boost science management at our Members.

While the master classes have been designed with specific target groups in mind, as described below, the events are open to any staff at our Member universities.

The event is organised as part of CESAER activities around knowledge and staff exchange. Please also check out the CESAER Knowledge and Staff Exchange platform which you may use at any time of the year.

You can attend CESAER Professional Week to get new ideas or connect to new partners in our association, and then use the Knowledge and Staff Exchange platform to enhance and deepen these learning and training experiences.
