Networking is crucial for scientists of all career stages for collaborations as well as for their personal growth and career pathways. Your scientific network can offer valuable support in navigating the challenges of academic life, aiding in career decisions, and providing constructive input on job applications, proposals, and research papers. Not only that but also, a scientific network can offer fresh insights, open doors to interdisciplinary partnerships, and spark innovative projects.

Establishing an initial network can prove daunting, particularly when extending beyond the boundaries of your research institution. As scientific conferences and social media platforms are evolving, the possibilities of academic networking are also changing. In this short course, we will share tips and tricks on how to establish, grow and maintain your scientific network. Additionally, panellists will talk about their own personal experiences. In the latter part of this course, we will engage in a networking exercise to put theory into practice. This short course is relevant to scientists who are starting to build/grow their network or want to learn more about networking in today’s scientific settings.
