First BIST PostDoc Day brings together 200 people to debate careers in research

Nearly 200 postdoctoral researchers from the six centers that make up the BIST met yesterday in the Sant Pau Art Nouveau Site to participate in the first BIST PostDoc Day.

The aim of the First BIST PostDoc Day was to create a space that allows postdoc researchers to share their expectations and concerns, to learn about the experience of researchers that have become entrepreneurs or group leaders, and to suggest ideas on how BIST can support and enhance their professional careers.

Professor Miquel Angel Pericàs, director of the BIST and ICIQ, kicked off the meeting by highlighting how important the postdoc community is to the BIST fully achieving its goals. Pericàs recalled that BIST wants to strengthen the research capacity of the six centers that make up the institute by promoting multidisciplinary cutting-edge projects, but above all by fostering its researchers’ potential through innovative training and talent-development activities.
