On 7, 8 and 9 May, Science+ will be held in Bilbao.
Science+ is a meeting which will deal with the different professional alternatives that exist in the field of science, especially within the European context. The programme consists of plenary lectures of general interest, discussion sessions between participants and speakers, and lectures focussing on the main areas. The presentations and panel discussions will be conducted by people with broad experience in scientific research, journalism and publishing, R&D companies, dissemination and funding in R&D.
At Science+ the participants will be able to find out about their professional options, learn from personal experiences, find relevant scientific associations to join, find out which R&D research programmes will be supportive, as well as discuss the future challenges for European science.
The event will be held in Spanish, with some lectures in English. All information relating to the event is available at scienceplus.es. To attend you should register with the nominal charge for registration (5 €).
