Inspiring Stories

The EPEC Outreach Working Group publishes a monthly series of “Inspiring Stories”. Every story will work as a case study and will act as an effort to inspire and motivate others to do outreach activities!

EPEC Annual Week

The EPEC Annual Week is an opportunity for the EPEC community to better get to know each other, to brainstorm on how to further develop the network in terms of the activities of its working groups and to enhance the interaction with members of the Europlanet Executive Board, who will be invited to give talks throughout the week. The school brings together young scientists from all EU countries and provides a networking platform where science discussion and collaboration are stimulated via a series of group activities.
