TASSA participated at the 2017 European Research Day (ERD)

TASSA participated at the 2017 European Research Day (ERD) held on 21 September in Washington DC. ERD is an event organized by EURAXESS North America where European and non-European researchers meet, discuss and exchange concepts about their research projects, professional and personal experience in their respective diasporas and overall career paths. It also presents a unique networking opportunity through which they can meet researchers from their current regions to advance in their careers and explore opportunities to collaborate. TASSA was invited to participate in ERD, and share expertise, at the Strategic Planning Workshop on the establishing of a Joint European Mentoring Initiative [JEMI]. National Scientific Diasporas leaders as well as Science and Research Counsellors from European embassies were invited to contribute to invitation-only sessions dedicated to strategically planning the establishment of JEMI. The foundation for JEMI was laid down at the second annual meeting of EURAXESS North America last year, where TASSA was a key contributor to these initial discussions.
