Young Professionals at European Microwave Week 


As a group of young scientists and engineers at early stage of our careers we share knowledge, enthusiasm and collaboration readiness around the globe. Multidisciplinarity and diversity in perspectives are our tools for pushing new technologies. We are Young Professionals and we will see you there at EuMweek 2017 with two of our sessions. On Tuesday, we bring you "Young Professionals in Microwaves" with speakers from startups and academic mobility programs to share their achievements. Thursday session “Macrowaving your career" brings interactive workshops on leadership skills, public speech, time and stress management to rise your research ambiance. Finally, we invite you to meet us at our networking event "Young Professionals Meet-up" within a casual atmosphere of a nearby pub.
