EPEC Annual Week

EPEC Annual Week 2023

The 5th edition of EPEC Annual Week, the Europlanet training school for early career scientists who work in the field of planetary science, will take place in Bratislava from 19-23 June 2023.

This year, EPEC Annual Week will be co-hosted with the first Europlanet Research Infrastructure Meeting (ERIM).

EPEC Annual Week is organised by EPEC, the Europlanet Early Career (EPEC) network. One of the main objectives of EPEC is to form a strong network between young professionals by organising early-career-relevant events and by engaging in different projects amongst the different working groups. Furthermore, the EPEC community aims to bring a young voice into Europlanet Society to shape the future of planetary and space sciences. More information on EPEC can be found here.

The training school 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. The school brings together young scientists from across Europe and provides a networking platform where science discussion and collaboration are stimulated via a series of group activities. The co-hosting of the meeting with ERIM 2023 will be an opportunity to enhance the interaction with other areas of the Europlanet Society.

Applicants must either be in their final year of a relevant Master’s course (or equivalent), be currently enrolled in a relevant Ph.D. programme or have obtained their Ph.D. qualification not earlier than 2015.

Note that in order to apply to the training school you are NOT required to be a member of EPEC, although this is encouraged. If you fulfil the requirements to be a member and wish to become one, please send an email to epec.network@gmail.com, including “EPEC application” in the subject.
