The 5th AgreenSkills Annual meeting has been held at The Royal Society of Edinburgh , between 11 and 14 June 2018.
Around 80 AgreenSkills fellows and alumni attended this annual major event that will be one of the last organized by the AgreenSkills+ programme until its closure, scheduled for May 5, 2019.
During this meeting all the fellows presented their scientific backgrounds, career tracks and projects and discussed their research projects during poster sessions.
As usual, a full day session was devoted to research practices in relation with Open Science, with much attention paid on Ethical issues.This year in Edinburgh, the issue of "Reproducibility in research: from data to research integrity” was chosen and addressed through several key talks and sequences of questions & answers that were very much appreciated by the audience.
Another session was devoted to “Grant writing” including an information on the ERC funding policy and a presentation of recommendations and questions to be taken into account when drafting grant proposals.
These sessions included key talks and free discussions and exchanges in small groups for case studies based on Fellows' research projects and experience.
