On Wednesday October 30, the Rathenau Instituut and CWTS are jointly organizing an event for researchers, Crafting your Career. A growing demand on researchers to perform seems to distract from other competencies needed or desired to be a good scientist. Or does it? Crafting your career will facilitate debate among early stage and senior researchers about career challenges in the current research system, and about ways to solve these either individually, or together. The afternoon is also a platform to meet researchers from various fields, career coaches, experts and role models: an afternoon full of debate, information, networking and entertainment.
