In light of the ongoing negotiations on the European Commission’s proposals on the future EU research framework programme (Horizon Europe), EuChemS, the European Chemical Society invites participants to reflect on the role an enhanced and ambitious programme can have on the state of research and innovation in Europe, and subsequently on the employability for chemical scientists.
The aim of the workshop is to understand the priorities of chemical research for Horizon Europe, to comprehend the meaning behind the latest employability figures of chemical scientists in Europe, and to present improvement measures for the future. With issues such as gender parity, salary discrepencies, job prospects, aquired versus needed skills, a complex web of intrinsically linked problems is quickly visible, bringing together education, employment and research in Europe. Together with policymakers and representatives from academia and industry, and with case study interventions, we aim to provide a constructive debate on how we can work on and improve the existing conditions.
