The programme REBECA is aimed at young researchers wanting to explore professional options beyond academia. REBECA will put them in contact with highly skilled professionals that will help them reflect about their competences, skills and career options.
The Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) collaborated in the development of the program together with the Association of Spanish Scientists in the Netherlands (CENL), the Iberia Club of the European Patent Office, the Czech Center and the Embassy of The Hague Austria.
The objective of this collection is to provide researchers with information on the different opportunities available in Spain and thus contribute to an open and transparent research area.
The document is based on the experience of designing, implementing and evaluating the first edition of the mentoring programme “REBECA-Researchers Beyond Academia”.
On March the 2nd, the association of Spanish Scientists in Denmark (CED / SFD), which brings together almost 200 Spanish scientists in Denmark, a leading country in technology and innovation, organized the third edition of the "Breaking Down Borders in Research".
FECYT participated in the conference "Opportunities for researchers in Spain" organized in collaboration by the London delegations of the Association of Spanish Reserachers in the United Kingdom and ACCIÓ, the Agency for Competitiveness of the Company of the Generalitat of Catalonia.
The programme is part of the European project Gearing Roles and it puts young women researchers in touch with more senior women researchers in order to support their career development and to jointly reflect about the necessary institutional changes to foster gender equality y research and teaching.
