This special open evening session runs on a dynamic program, outstanding guests and a friendly but insightful discussion. Here you will get a primer on several topics that are relevant to the Big Picture that this year’s Encuentros Conference is focusing on: Knowledge for Social and Economic Development.
We want to bring special attention to our two special sessions, both of which are designed to make the attendees aware of the wide range of opportunities for carrer development after finishing a post-graduate degree abroad, some of which may be beyond what you may have considered so far.
In the Brain Gain: return of skills and human capital special session we will to discuss and reflect on the challenges and opportunities, which Latin American -particularly Chilean- researchers, students and young professional with international training face at the moment of returning back to their home country. The speakers will share practical information for those who return and we will open up a discussion about the challenges for the return of human capital to Chile.
During the Science and Entrepreneurship special session we will share entrepreneurial ideas and experiences in order to help you move your business projects forward.
