1st EPEC (EuroPlanet Early Career network) Annual Week
The 1st EPEC (EuroPlanet Early Career network) Annual Week took place from 10-15 June 2018 at the International Space University in Strasbourg (France). Around 40 early career scientists from 19 different countries gathered for what turned out to be a very successful and unique event. Besides being a great networking opportunity, it proved to be an arena for stimulating discussions on several topics of major interest, from science policy to future space research. In addition, the participants brainstormed together through group activities to find solutions on how to improve the support, under all aspects, for Early Career Scientists, which is one of the core objectives of this network. The 2nd EPEC Annual Week in 2019 promises to be even more exciting, building on the success of this first meeting.
