The Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) will host its popular Innovation AveNEW for startups at Drug Discovery 2021 in Liverpool, UK on October 19-20. Presented by The European Laboratory Research & Innovation Group (ELRIG), Drug Discovery 2021 returns to an in-person meeting format with a mission to engage quality discussions on key issues and future directions in preclinical drug discovery.
How do I build a career in optics and photonics? Is my research focus too narrow? What career opportunities do universities offer international applicants? Unfortunately, the academic job market is far too often a black box and navigating one's path to a tenure position is a mix of grit and luck. The new conference format "Humboldt meets Leibniz" aims to change that and shed light on the career-building mechanisms in academia. 14 famous award winners of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation will share their expertise in optics and photonics and their career-building experiences with the next generation of scientists. Thus, 150 PhD students and Postdocs will be selected to attend this premier conference in Hannover, Germany. Their research shall focus on optical technologies, including material simulation, quantum optics, simulation, laser systems, optical imaging, metrology, and manufacturing technology. The event comprises classic poster sessions, presentations and discussions on research and career-building topics, and time for networking. Registration ends 1 November 2021 at www.uni-hannover.de/HmL.
In many regions around the world, the effects of climate change are already being felt today. They particularly affect the most vulnerable population groups and threaten human rights, including the right to life, health, water, food and an adequate standard of living. Measures to enhance climate justice and increase societal resilience will be discussed at a joint online symposium of the Human Rights Committee of the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina and the Royal Society of Edinburgh/UK on Thursday, 28 October and Friday, 29 October 2021.
