European Alumni Research Nights 2019

Network in an informal setup
at the European scale!

EARN#3 23 september is postponed!

 

 

유럽 연구 동문의 밤 행사 (European Alumni Research Nights)이란?

EARN2019은 2018년부터 한국 EURAXESS가 계획해온 유럽 연구 동문의 밤 행사입니다. 이번 행사를 통해 한국에 거주하며, 국적에 상관없이, 유럽에 관심이 있는 연구원들을 초대하여 함께 연구방향과 커리어 그리고 유럽과의 관계에 대한 토의의 장을 만들려고 합니다.
2019년 한국 EURAXESS는 정기적으로 더 많은 행사를 개최하여, 한국의 연구원들이 유럽에서 박사학위, 박사학위 후의 과정을 취득하고 연구 커리어를 쌓을 수 있는 기회를 모색 할 수 있는 시간을 마련하고자 합니다. 인문학과 사회과학분야를 포함하여, 다양한 학문 분야를 유럽에서 연구 할 수 있는 특별한 기회가 될 것입니다.
해당 행사의 첫 순서는 ‘연구 기회에 관한 발표’로 다양한 분야의 연구에 대한 소개 발표가 있을 예정이며, 두 번째 순서에는 연구 지원 프로그램에 참가한 한국과 유럽 연구원들이 각자의 소중한 경험을 공유하는 시간을 가질 것입니다.

 

What is EARN2019?

The European Alumni Research Nights events, organised since 2018 by EURAXESS Korea, aim to bring together researchers of any nationality, currently based in Korea and interested in Europe, to discuss research, careers and relation to Europe.

In 2019, we will held  several editions at regular intervals so as to allow local researchers to benefit from social, evening events which will feature talks on opportunities for Korea-based researchers to perform PhDs, postdoc or research stays in Europe at various stages of their career, which will be a unique opportunity for researchers to connect with others at the European scale, this for any discipline including social sciences and humanities

Each event will feature a short introduction presenting various aspects of research in orwith Europe called 'Research Opportunities Talks';and a second part where Korean and European researchers (often alumni from European grant schemes and programmes) will directly provide the audience with their valuable experience feedback.

EARN#1
ERC & MSCA mobility tools

Thursday 28 March 19:00 ~ 21:30
SPACES, Gran Seoul 7F  ACCESS

 

This edition's focus is on mobility tools, grants and opportunities to Europe for young researchers. The Research Opportunities Talks will draw an outline of the available programmes within ERC and MSCA; and the Alumni Talks will provide feedback from researchers with experience in Europe or in Korea with these grants. 

이번 동문의 밤은 신진 연구원들이 유럽에서 연구를 할 수 있는 기회 및 유럽-한국 연구교류 증진, 연구 보조금 지원에 관한 설명에 중점을 두고 있습니다.

또한, 연구 기회에 관한 대담을 통해 ERC와 MSCA 내의 연구 프로그램 관한 계획을 소개하고, 동문과의 만남을 통해 유럽 및 한국에서의 연구경험에 대한 피드백을 제공할 예정입니다.
