Frontiers Retreat
Vienna, 2021

Due to the COVID19 Worldwide Pandemic we are working on rescheduling the meeting for 2021. Keep an eye out for new dates and more information soon!

Dear colleagues,

After the great success of its first and second editions in 2016 and 2018, ESACT Frontiers invites you to attend the 3rd ESACT Frontiers Retreat in October 2020 in Vienna. These meetings are dedicated to early career scientists working in the cell culture technology and related fields. We aim to continue engaging the next generation of ESACT scientists and to encourage those who have not attended previous ESACT meetings to actively participate in this community.

Frontiers retreats are not classical meetings: they are built on sessions and tools to provide participants career and personal development skills, to stimulate their creative thinking emerging from interaction with peers and to promote active networking among the participants. They also aim to stimulate scientific discussions and help to bridge the gap between industry and academia.

The Scientific Sessions are an amazing opportunity for the participants to present their work. Most of the oral presentations slots are saved for young researchers who will be selected from high-quality submitted abstracts. We have prizes for best oral presentation and best poster presentation.

The Career and Personal Development Sessions will help you to develop personal skills and extend your professional network. Few things are as important for a young scientist as good soft skills and a great network: take this opportunity to improve or start building yours!

This meeting is open to the entire community, including NON-ESACT members.

Looking forward to meeting you in Vienna!
