Provide an effective and sustainable communication channel for ESRs
Support ESR-led activities such as webinars and face-to-face meetings throughout the project, including special symposia and poster sessions at cluster meetings
Help grow the careers of ESRs and create job opportunities
Organise social and professional networking events
This initiative is coordinated by the ASPIS communication and dissemination working group (C&D WG). A survey distributed among the ESRs highlighted their desire to focus on training that can accelerate their career development and diversity their career opportunities. The results of this survey also showed that the training sessions on science communication and the translation of science to policy and action were the most popular topics for the Academy. On this basis, the ASPIS Academy has taken shape and remains responsive to the evolving needs of ESRs.
Most recently, the ASPIS Open Symposium 2022 at the ESTIV Congress 2022 hosted two training sessions for ESRs on science communication and artificial intelligence for reproducible research, a social event, and the distribution of the Best Poster Award.
