The ISE Researchers’ Careers Task Force has been conducting a long reflection on the organisation of academic research in Europe, with a focus on the systemic structural changes that will be necessary for Europe to remain an attractive place to do science, and a competitive economic and scientific powerhouse.

To facilitate a constructive discussion around these topics, ISE will be running a series of three webinars specifically designed for policy makers, funders, universities, international organisations, and journalists.
