The Student Advisory Council is the speaking tube of SETAC Europe’s students aiming to support young researchers in becoming fully-fledged members of the Society. In this article we report our latest activities during the 6th SETAC World Congress/SETAC Europe 22nd Annual Meeting in Berlin, Germany, and the upcoming 3rd Young Environmental Scientists (YES) Meeting in Krakow, Poland.
General - The Student Advisory Council
The promotion of young scientists should be a top priority in a sustainably operating scientific community. Besides university education, great importance has to be placed upon the integration of young researchers into this community and coaching them for everyday life in the scientific world. It is for this reason that during the 2006 Annual Meeting in The Hague, the SETAC (Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry) Europe Student Advisory Council (SAC) was founded as the speaking tube of SETAC Europe’s students. The aim of the SAC is to support these young researchers to become well-networked, self-confident scientists, and as a result, fully-fledged members of the Society. To achieve these goals the SAC regularly organizes special student activities during SETAC Europe Annual Meetings and, on a biennial basis, an international students-only meeting (see below). Starting with this article, the SAC will regularly report its latest and upcoming activities in ESEU. For further information visit the council’s webpage at http://www.sac-online.eu/.
