YOU Events at the 22nd European Congress on Alternatives to Animal Testing, August 25-28 2019, University of Linz, Austria

YOU - Young Scientists in Action

Events at the congress

The YOU EUSAAT 2019 events are aimed at young and early career scientists (up to 35 yrs.) that already work or plan to work in the field of the 3Rs. We want to encourage the dialogue of young scientists among themselves and with experienced mentors that have been working in the field for a long time to give the opportunity for establishing new professional networks. Hence, we want to provide a free and open atmosphere for the exchange of scientific ideas and career experiences alike and to simply have some fun!

Join the events - we want YOU!

Thursday 10 October 2019 11:30-13:00
