Past EPEC-EPSC Working Group Activities

EPSC-DPS 2019 activities included:

  • EPEC Booth
    At the EPEC Booth at the Europlanet Society Stand you can always find one of us, get information about the early-career programme and sign up for various activities.
  • Social Event
    Early career social event is intended to foster new collaborations in a relaxed environment.
  • Discovery challenge
    A fun game to find out more about your fellow early career scientists’ research.
  • Short courses, training, career development and workshops
    We are ensuring that the conference program every year contains sessions and events that are of particular interest to young researchers. Short courses are usually held during the lunch breaks in a more informal environment. Topics of past short courses were, for example:
    • Scientific writing
    • It’s all about the money: How to write a proposal and what are possible sources of funding to apply for? Check out the slides
    • Past and present space missions
  • JobBoard
    Furthermore, we are maintaining a job-board during the conference week. Here, you can find current postings of PhD and PostDoc positions, internships and master theses. Since the contact persons/supervisors of these postings often attend EPSC it is a unique opportunity to directly meet them! Take advantage of this and have your CV prepared.
  • Science Flash
    Presenting scientific work in oral and poster sessions, publishing it in journals and books is undoubtedly essential for a successful career. However, presenting scientific content in a creative and entertaining way is not only fun, but also a good training! The Science Flash has become an established event in the EPSC program. Participants have 3 minutes and maximum one slide to entertain the audience with what they are working on. Seek out for the Science Flash in the EPSC-DPS2019 program, sign up in advance or during the conference at the EPEC Booth and win one of the most wanted trophies!
