Swedish researcher, one of the speakers at ERD in Ottawa, 5 Nov


At the European Research Day in Ottawa, on 5 November 2018, the Swedish researcher Karin Björklund from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg will be one of the speakers. She will share her mobility experience in the session: Transatlantic Research for Impact: Featuring best practices of scientific collaboration.

 

Karin Björklund says: I went to Canada as a postdoc, funded by a Mobility Grant through the Swedish Research Council FORMAS. Once I was in place and started my research, we applied for more funding through Canadian NSERC to cover costs for the lab, etc. I would say that it has been a success story for us in the project because we are still collaborating, 3 years after I left Canada.

European Research Day (ERD) is a one-day event that celebrates and promotes Europe as a hub for research and innovation. The event is designed so that European researchers outside of Europe meet, discuss and exchange concepts about their research projects, professional and personal experience in their respective diasporas and overall career path. It presents a unique networking opportunity through which they can meet researchers from their current regions to advance their careers and explore opportunities to collaborate.
