IN THE PICTURE

Flemish survey for junior researchers

As a young researcher, chances are that you will receive a reminder tomorrow to participate in the Flemish Survey for Junior Researchers. This survey aims to monitor your experiences with your job statute and career prospects, your level of satisfaction and your general wellbeing in your current job. The survey is conducted  in all five Flemish universities by ECOOM, the Centre for Research & Development Monitoring, and results are relevant for both the Flemish government and universities for defining young researchers’ needs and developing future policies.

Needless to say, your response and input are highly valuable so as to obtain optimally representative survey results. However, in order to also present an external incentive for you to participate in the survey, Hasselt University will blindly select five names of respondents and present them with a UHasselt Hoody or 3 x 2 cinema tickets, without compromising the anonymity of your answers to the survey.

Thank you for participating.



OPROEP

Academieprijzen wetenschapscommunicatie

De Koninklijke Vlaamse Academie van België voor Wetenschappen en Kunsten (KVAB) en de Jonge Academie lanceert de jaarlijkse oproep voor deelname aan de 'onderscheiding wetenschapscommunicatie'. De onderscheidingen worden toegekend aan verdienstelijke onderzoekers, die bovendien uitmuntend communiceren over hun passie.

De Academie reikt jaarlijks twee onderscheidingen uit:

  • Loopbaanprijs bekroont een onderzoeker die zich uitzonderlijk gedurende haar of zijn carrière sterke inspanningen leverde voor wetenschapscommunicatie.
  • Verschillende Jaarprijzen worden toegekend aan wetenschappers of teams van onderzoekers die zich gedurende het voorbije jaar intensief hebben ingezet voor een concreet project rond wetenschapscommunicatie.

Aan de UHasselt vinden heel wat initiatieven plaats rond wetenschapscommunicatie. Was u of een collega-onderzoeker als initiatiefnemer, organisator, medewerker… tijdens de voorbije twee jaren betrokken bij een activiteit rond wetenschapscommunicatie zoals een project, lezingen, populariserende artikels… waarbij informeren, sensibiliseren en interesse wekken voor wetenschappen een voornaam aandachtspunt was? Dien dan uw kandidatuur in voor 30 april 2018.

Meer informatie en de deelnameformulieren van de Jaarprijs en de Loopbaanprijs Wetenschapscommunicatie zijn beschikbaar op deze website. Gelieve deze voor 25 april 2018 te bezorgen aan wetenschapscommunicatie@uhasselt.be.
