  • Description:
    Our aim was to share knowledge and experience on the latest non-animal approaches in science with young scientists and professionals, to give them new insights and to enable networking and exchange among all participants — students as well as invited experts and ourselves at the JRC. We wanted the experience to be as interactive as possible for the students, hopefully eliciting input from every participant.

    With the approval of our hierarchy, a rather small group of brave people started to tackle the preparatory work for the inaugural summer school, which turned out to be quite extensive. Besides the elaboration of the programme itself, there was also a broad range of logistical challenges. Increasingly more people became involved, beyond the staff of our unit — for example, technical, catering, cleaning, transport and security services were all required. Many people had to be transported around (local public transport is, to put it mildly, suboptimal), accommodated and fed. In order to reach as many students as possible to inform them about the event, a range of different communication channels were explored. To limit the participation to our targeted audience, i.e. students or early-career scientists (maximum of four years post-masters or PhD) in relevant fields, and to ensure a good level of existing scientific education, we asked for a motivation letter, a CV and a poster abstract to be submitted along with the application. Based on these pre-defined criteria, these documents were used for the selection of participants.
