Sometimes working in the lab or the office is an isolating experience. It’s easy to get caught up in your own research and your own problems, and to miss out on the benefits of networking and collaboration outside of your bubble. We believe that creating diverse networks will enable the ingenuity of scientists to be unleashed, solving interdisciplinary problems through the generation of novel ideas, methods, and procedures.
Our Local Area Networks (LANs) bring together early career members to discuss, develop, and promote science, and to support each other’s career progression and development. LANs can cover a single university or institution, a town or city, up to a region or country. LANs offer opportunities to collaborate with colleagues, perform outreach in the community, develop professional and leadership skills, form lasting partnerships across disciplines or with industry, and most importantly to enjoy science together.
