“The Global State of Young Scientists in Latin America and the Caribbean: An Exploration of Constraints and Strategies” analyses the experiences of early-career researchers from Latin America and the Caribbean to contribute to a better understanding of the social contexts in which they develop their careers.
During the webinar, we will present the main findings of the report and discuss them with two prominent experts from the LAC region.
Afterwards, participants will be invited to share their ideas about next steps for the work of the GloSYS LAC working group.
The launch event for this report will be run in the form of a Zoom meeting.
