About early career researchers' participation in projects
Public-private partnerships (PPPs) offer early career researchers (ECRs, defined as those who have completed their PhD in the last few years) a wealth of opportunities for professional development.
As collaborative projects, PPPs allow early career researchers to gain practical experience of working in multidisciplinary teams with people from diverse backgrounds, such as government agencies, non-profit organisations, and industry. This exposure can provide early career researchers with a better understanding of industry practices, as well as valuable networking opportunities. Additionally, early career researchers can learn important skills such as project management, collaboration, and communication, which are transferable across different sectors. PPPs also offer early career researchers access to resources that may not be available through academic institutions.
This event will demonstrate how Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) projects contribute to early career researchers’ career development.
The event is part of a series of live sessions that IHI is organising on the impacts of IMI in different fields.
The session will focus on projects supported by the Innovative Medicines Initiative, a partnership between the European Union and the European pharmaceutical industry.
