AESOP Young Academics


http://www.aesop-youngacademics.net/


The AESOP YA network is an AESOP working group in particular addressed at planners who have only recently entered the academic world: PhD students, postdocs, people starting in academic positions. The activities of the AESOP YA network are complementary to other activities that are being deployed within AESOP as a whole.

CORE AIMS
Make AESOP a challenging environment for young academics

Form a network of young academics within AESOP

Initiate activities for young academics

Make the AESOP congress more attractive for young academics

Open up the structure of AESOP to better encourage young academic involvement

Ensure that attention is paid to the particular wishes and needs of young academics in the activities of AESOP

Use the opportunities offered by the Internet to make the organization more accessible and interactive, and to disseminate useful information.

The YA Network is organized by a Coordination Team (CT) of five elected members. One person from the CT represents the YA network in the AESOP Executive Committee.
