WALTHAM to sponsor 3 day forum to support researchers

Embarking on a new career or simply trying to develop within your chosen research discipline can be challenging. This is particularly true in a small, competitive global field, such as pet nutrition science. This is why WALTHAM is sponsoring the first European Society of Veterinary & Comparative Nutrition (ESVCN) workshop and offering free attendance, accommodation and meals to ESVCN members.

The workshop, to be held from 26-29 June, will bring together those in the early stages of their research career with internationally established scientists for a 3 day residential course in Laarne, Belgium. The programme includes discussion sessions on winning grants through to trials and tribulations of being a research supervisor. A day is also dedicated to understanding the importance of inter-personal skills. These are increasingly being recognised as crucial to develop in order to build stronger and more productive relationships with colleagues and collaborators.

The deadline for applications has been extended to Tuesday 28 February.

To find out further details on the workshop and how to apply visit the ESVCN website or download the document below.
