FLARE Summer School September 2011



San Lorenzo de El Escorial, Madrid, Spain


Between 5 and 8 September, the third FLARE Summer School was held for 30 post-doctoral researchers, with a focus on "Navigating career transitions".  

The ageing research landscape is changing.  Budget cuts and a focus on applied research are changing the nature of research funding, with increased focus on user engagement, impact, and implementation.   This Summer School brought together a wide range of post-doctoral researchers, from those immediately post-doc to those almost 10 years post-doc and aims to share expertise and experience to support the activities and ambitions of early career researchers in ageing.
