This year Science Week will take place as a virtual event which proved to be a very successful format in 2020.

Science Week 2021 will feature two main streams:

  1. Celebrate recent achievements: We want to celebrate the achievements during the last challenging year, with a particular focus on highlighting Early Career Researchers (ECR), who have lost a lot of opportunities for networking during the past year.
  2. 20-Year Vision Community Engagement: We want to share with the community what we have heard in the Listening and Visioning Phase of the 20-Year Vision Development and outline the draft 20-Year Vision framework.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:

  • Heather Crawford (Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)
  • Marcel Demarteau (Oak Ridge National Laboratory)
  • Tobias Junginger (University of Victoria)
  • Suzi Lapi (University of Alabama)
  • Peter Ostroumov (FRIB)
  • Art Ramirez (UC Santa Cruz)
  • Veronica Sanz (University of Valencia / University of Sussex)
  • Rowan Thomson (Carleton University)

Further details about the Science Week 2021 program can be found on the Indico site.

While registration for the event is FREE, registration is required for participation. Registration is now open and will close on August 12, 2021!

      During the panel discussion students will get a chance to hear from and interact with scientists who are very successful in their careers. We hope to provide students with insights on how to navigate through graduate school and early stages of the academic and research careers to get the most out of it. Students and postdocs will have a chance to learn which opportunities to take advantage of, and how to develop a verity of transferable skills and career competencies including building meaningful connections, planning and driving career, and building and managing a professional network.
