JRC-Lithuania Information events
The JRC and the Lithuanian Agency for Science, Innovation and Technology organised two information events in for Lithuanian scientists in Vilnius on 18-19 May. Such conferences are regularly organised in countries throughout Europe.
On 18 May, a seminar for young researchers aimed at raising awareness about JRC activities and career opportunities among young Lithuanian researchers. The audience of 60 Lithuanian PhD students had the opportunity to get an insight into JRC activities in support to EU policy making as well as to discuss opportunities for collaboration with the JRC. They also had the possibility to participate in a comprehensive workshop on job opportunities at the JRC where the new multi annual recruitment plan of the JRC was presented.
On 19 May, a JRC information day helped to raise the visibility of the JRC in the Lithuanian scientific community and to promote collaboration opportunities between the JRC and Lithuanian S&T organisations. Senior scientists from more than 15 Lithuanian research organizations gained first-hand knowledge of the JRC's activities, which closely reflect the concern of the Lithuanian scientific society, particularly in such areas as energy, environment, nuclear safety and security, biotechnology and competitiveness, innovation and economic modelling.
