    Report of 4th European Scientific Diasporas in North America Annual Meeting

    The overarching theme for European Scientific Diasporas 2018 Meeting was ‘Innovation to Society’. This one-day event celebrated and promoted Europe as a hub for scientific research and innovation impacting society. It held a series of panels discussing the various roles and achievements of European



    "I believe the MSCA Fellowship has provided me with one of the greatest experiences in academia a scientist could ever have and wish for. It has allowed me to position myself better in the labor market and to achieve the level of scientific maturity I needed to understand where to steer my career next. I’ve become more interested in the past years in the topic of closing the knowledge-implementation gap in conservation science and that’s what I want to do next. I’m currently looking and applying for opportunities that will allow me to do just that and hopefully the fact that I’ve been recently invited to edit a book on the topic will help differentiate my expertise and increase my chances to get a position."



    "While several activities organized by the European Commission have facilitated exchange between Marie Curie fellows in the area, EURAXESS North America, through their website and presentations at US institutions, provides valuable information for funding opportunities and career prospects for both Europeans and Americans in the US, Canada and Europe. If both Europeans and Americans use these opportunities, this will increase valuable Trans-Atlantic scientific exchange."


    DR. GERRY ALONS More interviews with researchers 


    "I think it is extremely important for researchers to have a mentor. Mentors can help when you’re stuck with a problem, aren’t sure where to go, or even just need a confidence boost. I’ve been privy to situations where people did not have good mentors and it’s really frustrating to not have any of that support. I have been lucky that during my Bachelors and Masters programs I had fantastic mentors – people who still check in with me to this day and who I can go to for advice on all sorts of matters. Having that type of professional and personal support has been paramount for my career and personal development."



    "Research is international, and ideas travel through people. Mobility between countries can be a huge boost to your career. It can be a great personal experience, too: my partner was able to follow me, so got a first opportunity to live abroad. Some fellowships, including the Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship, provide generous funding for an accompanying family."


    DR. JODI SCHNEIDER More interviews with researchers


    "Freeing up time to concentrate was the most important gift of the ERC, but being able to assemble both the project and a research team completely as I saw fit has also been intensely rewarding and liberating. This was the first time in my research that my two interests of composition and ethnomusicology truly could come together in an organic way."
