The first edition of the Future Leaders Forum, which will be held on Friday the 28th October 2022 at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Campus Ciutadella, is a one-day conference organised by BIST postdocs and junior leaders, with the aim of encouraging networking among the postdoctoral community and providing a relaxed space for lively and interactive talks and activities focused on career progression and transition.

We will bring to you keynote speakers from academia and industry, round-tables, and networking sessions, where together we will debate about how to tackle scientific and career challenges in high-priority research areas such as healthcare and biomedical research, quantum technologies, and sustainability.

In addition to our keynotes, we want to hear about you! One abstract from each of the BIST centres will be selected for a 5-min FLASH research talk. Send us a 250 words abstract, written in lay language. Please highlight your research but also the research done in your centre and how it can be related to other fields and disciplines

Don’t miss this great opportunity to share your research and your institute’s work with the wider BIST community. Who knows, the right collaborator might be just around the corner. And, best of all, we will be giving two BEST FLASH prizes, one voted by the public and one by the organisers.
