YSF Workshops at ESB2021

The YSF will organize two workshops at ESB2021.

The first YSF Workshop is entitled „YSF Opening workshop – Green Lab sustainability & Communication skills“, and will be held on Sunday, the 5th of September, from 15:00 until 18:00. In this workshop, we will briefly explain the YSF’s “Green Lab sustainability” Initiative, and Pedro Alves (Instituto de Investigação e Inovação em Saúde – U. Porto (i3s), Portugal) will explain and share his “Greenlab experience”. Afterwards, the session on “Communication skills” will include insights on how to “Boost your Communication skills & How to do a good pitch” by Jane Bennett-Powell (freelance journalist and science communication trainer), followed by the important advices on “Pitching to Investors” from Sonia Hallen (LSP connecting investors to inventors, The Netherlands). During the same session, Jasper Van Hoorick (Ghent University & Xpect-INX, Belgium) will share his experience on the steps “From Academic research to spin-off company: the story of XPECT INX”. This session will end with an interactive round table with the audience.

The second YSF Workshop is entitled „Educational workshop – Writing and Publishing” (organized by YSF & “AERoGELS”  COST action), will be held on Tuesday, the 7th of September 2021, from 13:30 until 14:30. This workshop aims at sharing tips and tricks on “Effective graphical abstract and covers” by Maria Southall (Executive Editor Biomaterials Science, Royal Society of Chemistry); Uta Goebel will, then, give her advices on how to proceed  “From data selection to the best graphical representation” (Editor-in-Chief Advanced Healthcare Materials, Wiley). Christine Horejs will finally provide highly useful guidelines on “Assembling figure panels” by (Chief Editor Nature Reviews Materials, Nature). This session will end with an open discussion, with Q&A to the invited speakers.

Conference Status with respect to the Coronavirus pandemic

In the last two weeks, despite the great progress of the vaccination program, the number of coronavirus infections in Portugal has risen significantly due to the Delta variant of the virus. The nationwide 7-day incidence of 110.2 (as of July 1, 2021; source: Johns Hopkins University) is well above the critical limit of 50 newly infected persons per 100,000 inhabitants, per week. 

Taking into consideration the health and safety of all presenters, exhibitors and attendees, and the importance of assuring the quality of the Conference Program, the Organising Committee has taken the difficult decision to move ESB2021 to a fully virtual format, from September 5-9, 2021.
