The European Commission hosted a two-day event entirely dedicated to the MSCA community in Toulouse, France, this July. Mattias from qBionano was one of the invited speakers to the “How to Engage with Policy-Makers” session.
Around 200 MSCA fellows gathered together on 7 and 8 July 2018 for an MSCA Satellite Event ahead of the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) 2018 in Toulouse, France.
The European Commission hosted a two-day event entirely dedicated to the MSCA community. The Satellite Event included sessions on transferable skills such as “How to Engage with Policy-Makers” and “How and Where to best present your project”. The two topics are part of a set of introductory training modules to all MSCA fellows available on a new online platform: the MSCA Learning Hub (to be launched in September 2018).
The participants also enjoyed activities of networking such as speed dating (short presentations of research projects – 10 minutes and then on to the next…) and visits to Airbus and the Aeroscopia Museum. The programme of the event and the presentations are available below.
A big thank you to all of the fellows who joined us there and to the speakers, it has been a pleasure meeting you!
Here is the full official programme, including speaker biographies.
Below are the slides presented by Mattias.
