Successful researchers generate successful research – and ultimately life changing outcomes for patients. What can be done to foster success?
Competent professionals, who are committed to staying at the leading edge of developments in their field and developing their personal skills, are the underlying foundation of successful research. However, established mechanisms for maintaining professional competence and traditional career paths are being challenged. Changes in the employment landscape in industry and academia, the cross-disciplinary nature of modern science, the need for greater collaboration across traditional sectoral boundaries and the increased need for training to be responsive to real-life working, are all impacting on how the biomedical sector maintains a fit-for-purpose workforce. So how can your organisation and indeed YOU be ‘fit for the future’ in this environment?
This conference is a new international forum to bring together the key influencers, policymakers, and stakeholders from academia, industry and the professional bodies who will shape and implement how career-long continuing professional development is managed in the future. It will encompass career-long continuing professional development for both the academic and industry sectors. The foundations for this event were built by the LifeTrain initiative and a series of workshops: http://www.lifetrain.eu/join-us/our-workshops/
Delegates will gain:
A better understanding of how training and professional development practices are being adapted to the changing scientific and working environment
An update on the latest resources for supporting career development, and best practice on how to make use of them
Access to a network of professionals with a common interest in continuing professional development
Support for implementing cultural change
The sessions will present real-life examples of how the challenges are being addressed.
