Inspireurope+ webinar series (II)

The European University Association (EUA) presented the second webinar of a five-part series as part of the Inspireurope+ project (September 2022 - September 2025), which aims to strengthen and coordinate support for researchers at risk across Europe.

This webinar offered inspiration for host institutions on how to support researchers at risk in making the most out of their fellowships. There are well-known challenges for scholars in transition between different academic environments and traditions. The webinar focused on available support for the researchers to overcome challenges and navigate career development during a temporary position.

 The presentation is now available.
