The first session, titled “Research Careers and Changing Frameworks”, will feature presentations by Carolina Cañibano from CSIC, who will discuss the conceptual framework for studying science research careers, and Dario Capezzuto from the European Commission, DG RTD, R&I actors and research careers who will delve into the scenario of research careers in Europe.



The second session, “Monitoring Research Careers,” will cover topics such as data collection strategies and their combination in RISIS2, presented by Stephan Stahlschmidt from DZHW, and the development of the Doctoral Degree and Career Pilot Dataset (DDC), presented by Eric Iversen from NIFU. Tudor Ion from the European Commission, DG RTD, and Fernando Galindo-Rueda from the OECD will then discuss monitoring research careers through a Research and Innovation Careers Observatory.

The program will continue in the afternoon with presentations on “The DocEnhance Career-Tracking Survey of Doctorate Holders” by Julia Boman from the European Science Foundation and “The German National Academics Panel Study (NACAPS)” by Sarah Widany from DZHW.
