In 2014, EURAXESS North America launched the inaugural Meeting for the European Scientific Diasporas in North America (ESD). At the time, the aim was to provide a platform for European researchers and scientific networks in North America to meet, discuss and exchange concepts about their research projects, professional and personal development, as well as efforts to connect to Europe.
For the 2017 Annual Meeting, EURAXESS North America, in partnership with the Embassy of France, will celebrate and promote the Strides and Efforts in Science Communication within the European Research Area. In addition to the planned panels, the event will hold a full day expo inviting each diaspora and embassy to feature their efforts in the advancement of science communication both in and out of Europe.
In addition to the opportunity to network, ESD will, through the lens of Science Communication, focus on EU projects, European countries and finally European diasporas in North America:
- NETWORK: All-day EXPO of European Diaspora/Country.
- PROMOTE PROJECTS: Panel discussing the progression of ‘TOPs’ European Commission-funded projects;
- FEATURE COUNTRIES: Panel highlighting the EURAXESS –focused countries of 2017 Estonia, Greece, Luxembourg and Norway.
- ENHANCE DIASPORA Efforts: (a) Panel presenting latest developments of the Joint European Mentoring Initiative [JEMI] in North America; and (b) Panel launching Marie Curie Alumni Association Chapter of North America.
