ISIR Early Career Researchers Event: International Research Visits
Date: 16 March 2023, 15:00-16:30 (CET)
For many early career researchers, international research visits offer a great opportunity to expand their horizons, collaborate with new colleagues and to take a look behind the scenes at a different university. However, planning and organizing such a visit may also be a challenge when you are relatively new to the research community.
To give early career researchers within the ISIR community the chance to learn from others how they have organized research visits, what challenges they faced, and what recommendations they have, the ISIR Early Career Researchers (ECR) chapter will host an online event on the topic of international research visits on Thursday 16 March 2023, from 15:00 till 16:30 (CET). During the first half of the event, several early career researchers and experienced professors will share their own experiences with international research visits. Topics that may be discussed include (but are not limited to): how to find a potential host, organizational issues, financing, expected outcomes, etc. The second half of the event will be reserved for an open discussion about any questions the audience may have. The event is targeted at early career researchers within the ISIR community but is open for everyone who is interested in attending.

The ISIR Early Career Researchers chapter was officially established at the 2022 International Symposium on Inventory Research. The main goal of the ECR chapter is to support PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, and those in the first five years of their inventory-related careers in academia or in industry, by offering networking opportunities and events focused on topics that are of relevance in the early stages of an (academic) career. The ECR Chapter is led by chair Mirjam Meijer, Assistant Professor of Operations Management at the Kühne Logistics University (Germany), and vice-chair Sarah van der Auweraer, Assistant Professor of Operations Management at IÉSEG School of Management (France).
