The 8 days event will combine:
- complementary skills training,
- scientific conference,
- networking events
all dedicated to early-stage researchers including internationaly renowned scientists and leading industrials.
The first 2 days (4th and 5th of June) will be dedicated to complementary skills training usefull to develop young reseachers career such. workshop will includ a course on:
1- How to design a research project and present it - Ljuba Bacharova, MD, DSc, MBA
The aim of the workshop is to enhance skills in designing and presenting a research project, including skills in argumentation and critical appraisal.. During two days, the participants will experience a process of elaborating and presenting a research project. This process will include defining a research topic, selecting an adequate study design, selecting an adequate method of data collection, analysis and interpretation, and developing a feasible study plan and timeline for the project, including preparation of a research paper. The basic teaching methods used will be “problem-based” and “learning-by-doing” processes, combining project development and class presentation, small group and plenary discussions.
2- "How to get your paper published in a scholarly journal". by Ray Boucher (Editors at Wiley and sons Ed.)
