The YSBB 2023 is a multidisciplinary research and networking conference intended to create a discussion forum for Early and Mid-Career Researchers (EMCRS) up to 12 years after PhD from Poland and students primarily from Eastern Europe and Central Asia. In particular, the conference is dedicated to scientists at risk, including conflict-affected countries (e.g. Ukraine).

The Polish Young Academy is the main organizer of this event. The conference is planned as an online meeting to facilitate participation in current times.

The YSBB 2023 aims to encourage students and Early Career Researchers to pursue scientific careers and to consider Poland and Polish scientific community as a partner in this process. The YSBB 2023 will gather young group leaders, postdocs, PhD students, and students that will have the opportunity to talk about themselves and their research interests. The event has a particular emphasis on networking with the aim of allowing to share knowledge, make new contacts and establish new collaboration links. It will also feature a dedicated session for students and Early and Mid-Career Researchers on career and funding opportunities in Poland and the EU.


Best student presentations in the tracks will be awarded.
