TNational Postdoc Meeting will be hosted hosted by the Postdocs of Cambridge (PdOC) Society and the University of Cambridge. The meeting aims to bring together representatives from research staff associations (RSAs) from around the UK and all interested postdocs.

The meeting will give postdocs from all different disciplines and research institutions in the UK a chance to meet and network with each other and with invited guests and speakers from the academic and research policy world. Additionally the meeting will fall during what is known in the US as the Postdoc Appreciation Week which will be celebrated!

The primary purpose of the meeting is to discuss how UK universities live up to the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers and the Bratislava Declaration of Young Researchers and input into the on-going review of the Concordat. 

The meeting will be one full day from lunch on Tuesday 19th September to lunch on Wednesday 20th September, will include workshops and talks from invited speakers, and will be directly followed by a panel discussion of representatives from research funders and policy institutions. In the evening of 19th September there will be a formal dinner for all participants at Peterhouse, the oldest of the Cambridge Colleges.

The National Postdoc Meeting will be the inaugural event to be held in the Postdoc Centre at Eddington in North West Cambridge. This is the third space dedicated to postdocs in Cambridge and the first to be built especially for that purpose.

The European Research Day (ERD) is an event where European researchers outside of Europe meet, discuss and exchange concepts about their research projects, professional and personal experience in their respective diasporas, and overall career path. It also presents a unique networking opportunity through which they can meet researchers from their current regions to advance in their careers and explore opportunities to collaborate.

This one-day event will celebrate and promote Europe as a hub for research and innovation through strategic interdisciplinary training workshops. The event will be open to all European Scientific Diasporas in North America, as well as current and/or previous American/Canadian researchers who have benefited from European research grants to further their careers (namely MSCA and ERC fellows), representatives from European Embassies, US/Canadian universities, industry and partners of DISCOVERY - a H2020 project promoting EU-North America dialogue on ICT policy, cybersecurity and funding mechanisms for transatlantic collaboration in research and innovation.

Capacity is very limited. If your desired session is full, please e-mail us at northamerica@euraxess.net with subject ERD17, and the sessions of interest so that we may add you to the respective waiting lists.
