Following the three successful cycles of webinars on Life Sciences, ICT and the Humanities, held in July 2020, October 2020 and January 2021 respectively, Real Skills for Scientists returns in November 2021 with a fourth cycle in the fields of Natural Sciences and Applied Mathematics.

This cycle, consisting of 2 webinars featuring trained speakers on topics such as Physics, Chemistry, Nanotechnology, Paleontology, Geoinformatics, Environmental Sciences etc. targets undergraduate and postgraduate students, doctoral candidates, doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, and young researchers of all scientific fields, degrees and career stages.

During the webinars, young scientists, young professionals and entrepreneurs will be able to meet online and talk with renowned scientists from Greece and abroad who will share their own career experiences. The speakers come from both academia and business.

A common purpose to all the webinars is the development of skills needed for the professional employment of young scientists and researchers, including creation a suitable curriculum vitae, volunteer work, parallel fields of work to strengthen their research / scientific profile, writing research proposals, finding funding, research activity through scientific publications, useful networking tips, etc.
