EuroSTEMPeers is the European chapter of the global STEM network which aims to connect early-stage STEM researchers to seek collaborations and guidance to transition to industrial, academic or entrepreneurial roles. After successfully hosting two conferences (Brno-April 2018, Berlin-April 2019), which introduced a unique stage for the young researchers and seasoned professionals to communicate and take advantage of the STEMPeers network in building their future roadmap to success. The EuroSTEMPeers 2020 is the third chapter of a yearly conference. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we have decided to host a virtual meeting to maximize networking and keep this chapter alive.

The Berlin EuroSTEMPeers meeting from 2019 focused on the young researchers, mainly seeking to enter into the private sector. Clearly, there was much to share in order to make this transition as smooth as possible. What I felt stood out, was not only the extremely friendly atmosphere, but we addressed deeper topics, such as the root causes of stress, anxiety and career barriers, which were openly discussed in a constructive manner.

Participating to EuroSTEMPeers2019 allowed to me listen to inspiring talks, meet many talented peers and broaden my support network. I particularly enjoyed the fact that the event was very well organised and the talks and panel discussions were broad: research, science policy, digital innovation, diversity in STEM, and so on: I highly recommend attending EuroSTEMPeers!

During EuroStemPeers 2019 I met wonderful people, that I work with till today. The conference gave me a possibility to start working as an intern with Sci-Illustrate. I could not ask for more :)
I enjoy Eurostempeers to the core because of its fresh outlook to the sustainable career issues for the STEM PhDs. The breadth of discussions covering social issues of science professionals in spite of having a focus on career development for early-stage researchers makes the conference unique.

Volunteering for EUROSTEMPeers 2019 was an unique opportunity for me, to be actively involved in an “non-academic” event for the first time in Germany. During the event, listening to several speakers of varied fields, especially some amazing Startups, gave me a new perspective of opportunities in Science! This was especially needed after being focused on a single topic during my PhD. Moreover, this was a great chance to connect and personally meet with so many CSG members, whom I just knew virtually. Some of them became really good friends! The best part of attending the event was that, it ascertained the power of Networking, as I landed a Free Lancing job with LabTwin (a Startup in Berlin), one of the sponsors of the EUROSTEMPeers 2019.

"The speakers at EuroSTEMPeers Berlin provided a great perspective on the need of the market and how STEM scholars could help fill the gap. It was a great opportunity to meet the experts as well as the enthusiastic audience members in a relaxed atmosphere. A lot of effort put together by the entire team which was clearly visible. I highly recommend this meeting if you are looking for a fresh outlook into your current job or future career. I am very much looking forward to the next meeting already."
