The 2nd Joint Science Conference took place in Vienna on May 22-24, 2016 gathering representatives of national academies of sciences and arts, rectors’ conferences, distinguished scientists, as well as junior scientists and representatives of the European Commission and the Regional Cooperation Council.
PERFORM was represented by its Manager, Mr Martin Dietz.
Junior scientists were able to participate in the Conference for the first time on the initiative of PERFORM and supported by the German and Austrian Academies of Sciences. In preparation of the Conference, PERFORM facilitated a process whereby young researchers from Western Balkan countries developed an Opinion Paper on their position in national science systems and included recommendations how to enable young people to develop as researchers. The paper was presented at the Conference and discussed.
