As you might already know, CFIA organizes an international academic conference, focusing on ‘Frugal Innovation for Sustainable Global Development’ on 7 and 8 November 2017. Because CFIA values the work of junior researchers and PhD candidates in the upcoming field of frugal innovation, we decided to add an Early Career Day to the conference.
This Early Career Day will take place on the 9th of November, from 9:00-17:00 in Leiden, the Netherlands. On this day, we aim to give junior researchers and PhD candidates the opportunity to discuss their work, research and experiences with frugal innovation with peers. The day will consist out of a few presentations but will mostly focus on workshops and discussion among the participants.
While we encourage both junior and more experienced academics to visit our Conference, we organize a special event for those in the beginning phases of their promising academic careers. Frugal innovation is quite a new field of study, which may mean that it can be difficult to find peers with whom to discuss and exchange knowledge. CFIA organizes a day full with workshops and discussion to do exactly that. Come to Leiden and meet fellow researchers working on this newly established field of research. CFIA invites the leading academics of the future to our Early Career Day!
Are you interested in joining the CFIA Early Career Day? Please register by sending a CV and a description of your work/research (500 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration is open until the 25th of June.
