Young Scientist Breakfast

During “Zoonoses 2023 – International Symposium on Zoonoses Research” young scientists, who are members of the Zoonoses Platform, have the unique opportunity to meet distinguished scientists from the community at an informal joint breakfast. While you are enjoying your breakfast at the restaurant of the event’s venue site (MOA Eat), you may ask senior scientists about their careers and get valuable tips for your own career in science. The Young Scientist Breakfast takes place on October 11th, 2023 from 9:00 to 10:30 am.  In order to be able to take advantage of this opportunity, it is necessary that you state your interest in participating in the Young Scientist Breakfast. Please note that the number of places is limited. We will inform you a few weeks before the event if you have a place. If you are not able to take your place, please let us know in time so that we can allocate the place to someone else.
