Early Career Scientist Panel at the International Council for Science (ICSU) General Assembly

Published on

Six early-career scientists were invited to participate in a panel at the International Council for Science (ICSU) General Assembly in Auckland, New Zealand on September 3, 2014.

ICSU is a non-governmental organization with the mission to "strengthen international science for the benefit of society" through promoting international research collaboration, science for policy, and making science more open, equitable, and ethical throughout the world. Its members consist of over 120 national scientific academies of distinguished scholars elected to provide scientific advice and service to their countries (including the National Academy of Sciences in the US, and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, who award most of the Nobel Prizes). Other members include international scientific unions, which focus on promoting scientific subject areas (like the International Union of Biological Sciences). More info: http://www.icsu.org/

The panelists focused on three priorities for early-career scientists (integrating early career scientists in leadership, providing career support through networks and mentoring, and opportunities and incentives for science for society).

At the end of the session, a decision was proposed by UK Delegate and early career panelist Yvonne Gruender, which was unanimously approved by the voting members of ICSU.

Please note that these slides were slightly modified after presentation (addition of slides 1 & 5, and title to slide 2) to facilitate standalone understanding.

Full panel notes will be posted on http://www.kimnicholas.com/
