BACKGROUND / MOTIVATION for our session
Researchers in early stages of their career have to navigate in a demanding and highly competitive
environment and are increasingly faced with precarious working conditions and limited contracts.
In order to successfully pursue an academic career, excellent research and a respective track record
is expected, which is enhanced by a clear scientific focus.
At the same time, inter- and transdisciplinary collaboration is considered necessary to tackle
complex societal, environmental and technical challenges.
However, RECOGNITION for an INTERDICSCIPLINARY FOCUS is still LACKING
in scientific communities (e.g. lack of publication possibilities)
and therefore often perceived as a barrier for career development.
Biases towards different research interests are
often interrelated with sex and gender issues and other socio-economic factors.
Hence, an INTERSECTIONAL approach is needed to FOSTER EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES.
Instruments to support young researchers and underrepresented groups in academia
in their career development often focus on an individual level and disregard structural change.
Therefore, they have been criticized for reproducing traditional organizational cultures,
impeding power relations and stereotypes.
THE AIM of the session is to stimulate an open discussion and feedback to identify
improvements and creative options towards a more inclusive academia embracing different talents and disciplines.
