Online Forum 2022

After our successful Online Forum on Research Careers & Policy last year, we are delighted to announce our second Irish RSA Online Forum on Research Careers , which will include presentations from key speakers and panel discussions. The Forum will be organised as a virtual event via Zoom.

We intend to facilitate a discussion on sustainable careers for researchers, with a focus on mobility, gender equality, open science by bringing together a number of key experts and stakeholders in research careers, both on national and international level.

Our target audience are researchers, higher education institutions, decision-makers in the public service and other relevant stakeholders.
